Alas, although I had Valentine's Day plans with the girls back in Boston, I find that I have to be in New York the night of the 14th as I have an interview early the next day. No, I cannot change the time of the interview, and believe me, I tried.
Thus, I was wondering if people had any ideas of places near NYU where I could dine on Valentine's Day that does not require reservations, nor a place where I would feel uncomfortable potentially dining solo. I am open to all kinds of food - truly, I am. If it helps, current favourites in NY include 'Inoteca, Lupa and Alta. Price should be in the realm of those favourites mentioned.
