I'm looking for recommendations for a great place for dinner tonight downtown but closet to the 4/5/6 trains. I'm taking a guy I've been dating (and really like!) for his birthday and he prefers not to transfer subways and we both live on the upper east side. We always meet somewhere in our neighborhood so I was hoping to eat on the lower east side or meatpacking but now that it's FREEZING and there's a "grid-lock alert", I think I'd prefer to stay close to the subway -- if you can come up with some awesome suggestions!
I'd like to spend up to $150 but more importantly I want to have great food (leaning toward Italian/Asian, definitely NOT French!) and fun/cool/slightly romantic atmosphere...??
I hope you can help! Thanks!!
