first trip to NYC

mpeanut | Oct 21, 2008 10:37 AM

My boyfriend and I will be visiting from Texas next month for 4 days. Neither of us has been to NYC before. To save money we are staying with a friend in NJ and going to explore the city during the days. ONE night (a Sunday), we are staying in the city to see a show and have dinner. I am having dreams of Jean Georges or Le Bernadin for our one nice meal (ha!). Fortunately for my bank account, most place like this are closed on Sunday evening.

We just want to have a nice romantic meal after the show (which should get out around 6). The type of food doesn't matter... I just like things that are interesting and creative. Would like to stay under $150ish for the both of us, including a glass or two of wine (I drink, he doesn't). I know this puts us in the "cheap eats" category by Manhattan standards. We don't have to stay in the theater district, and not really sure if we should or not. I really am totally clueless. Any suggestions would be wonderful.
