me and a few friends are assembling in NYC on Thursday night.
we're considering our dining options. we need around $25 per person (without wine) or less, but all my dining knowledge is in hartford-springfield, and not NYC.
our confused contingent, which we're meeting (the NJ/PA bunch should all arrive on the same train...should...:) at grand central, numbers two, and there are five of us total.
any suggestions? great ideas? interesting non-traditional inspirations? should be near a subway in 212-land, and we don't have any food restrictions unless they insist on putting mushrooms on everything.
all inspiration welcomed. constructive comments liked. thanks. :)
