A friend of mine is visiting this weekend and is looking forward to the "cool, trendy" nightlife and restaurant scene of NYC. I want to take her out for dinner Sat. night in the meatpacking and/or chelsea area...some place trendy but not too chichi or pretentious.
There will probably be 4 of us for dinner and I would like to stay under $50/person for dinner including a drink or two. In this case, food should be good (but doesn't necessarily have to be a culinary adventure) and scene should be great. Open to any cuisine except Thai and sushi recs. would be appreciated. Thanks guys!
