Manhattan Dining

Hello All~

We will be staying in Chelsea next weekend and I am way behind on restaurants. We will be in town for 4 days and are looking for some great spots while we are there for lunch and appetizers/dinner. Our group of 4 has an age range of 42-70 and we love great food and wine. We are not looking for anything inJean-Georges scale, but would like some memorable spots to find throughout the City.

Any suggestions are appreciated!
Sarah

I really enjoyed my dinner at Colicchio and Sons a few months ago. Certainly not the cheapest place, but I think the 4-course menu at $82 is good value.

If you find restaurants you like, do make reservations, even if you are going to a simple neighborhood type place. The city is incredibly busy, and Chelsea is a very popular weekend dining destination.

If you are looking for something simple and good, I like Tello's on 8th Avenue and 21st Street. Nothing fancy, but very reasonably priced Italian food.

Sarah,

The prix fixe lunch at Jean Georges is only $32.00 for a 3 course meal. Actually, this is kind of hard to beat for what you get - a pretty amazing NYC dining experience.

You can also go a la carte in the more casual Nougatine next door - same kitchen and food...
