Budget: ~50 pp before tax/tip, not including drinks
Nice to have:
-not too loud/scene-y
Food is more important than ambience. Not big drinkers so cocktails aren't really a factor.
Del Posto lunch and Dirt Candy are booked. Should I consider Candle79? Peeked at menu and wasn't really feeling it, but tell me if I'm missing out.
Chowhound research leads me to the following:
Union Square Cafe
Clinton St. Baking Co. (long waits so maybe not a great option)
Thoughts? Thanks for any suggestions or tips - I'm having a heck of a time deciding!
