Beginning to plan my annual spring visit to NYC and need some help. Last year we went to Bar Blanc on a Sunday night and while the space was very cool and the food was good , the restauarant was almost deserted which took away from the overall experience. Not looking for insanely loud...just not empty!
Some i am considering include Apiary, Maialano, Locanda Verde, Scarpetta, Gramercy Tavern (tavern side), and SD26. I am open to other suggestions in this price range. Cuisine and neighbourhood are not really factors.
Thanks in advance.
