I'm showing my friend from Los Angeles around for the week and not sure what food stands/restaurants to take her to in Manhattan, since I never eat out here.
We're looking for at most a $30/entree kinda place (she's expensing it). we've done pseudo-italian, la bonne soupe and considering artisanal (but that might be over our budget). i'm taking her to norma's for brunch on the weekend.
she'll be here til sunday lunch. any other suggestions for dinner? i was thinking cafe centro one night too (since i have a coupon). we're looking for a variety of cuisines, but we can probably skip the asian foods since she's had much better in cali anyway.
