So next Tuesday I'm taking some Gullible Young Woman to see Karol Armitage at the Joyce.   For dinner after, I'm thinking of two places: Aldea and La Luncheonette.   Aldea, obviously, is one of t

This is awesome.

If you need to put on music for the right mood, .

4 people on a saturday night west village, gramercy, east village, looking for a prime time reservation. oof. anything goes though as long as the food is good.

You don’t say when this is for. Obviously, the further out, the better the chance for a prime time table.

 

We really like Simon & the Whale, in the Freehand Hotel (on Lex b/t 23rd & 24th).

thanks! for next saturday. I did think about kyo ya but wasn't sure either...

As it happens, our daughter and son-in-law are going to Kyo Ya this evening. They’ve been there before, so I’ll ask them how it is with the new chef.

I am often near Simon & the Whale. Despite the name, I should try it?

Live tweeting from Joe and Pat’s. Pizza is delicious . All of Rich’s suggestions laughed at me when I called this morning.   The vodka slice at Joe and Pat's is so good.

Yes. We’re thrilled to have it the proverbial stone’s throw from our apartment (down the block and around the corner). Been several times for lunch and dinner. Never a disappointment with the food.

They had not heard about the chef leaving. Very disappointed with their meal. No sushi chef. Ergo, no sushi!

Attending book discussion [really a 'young conservatives' event—Ross Douthat will be there :P ] in a Gramercy Pack club scheduled to wind up round 10.30 pm. Maiolino closes at 10, the bar at 11. Any place else nearby where I could take a late dinner afterwards?

 

I suppose I could just head down into the East Village. Ssäm Bar is little more than ten minutes walk and closes at 11.30 pm.

Also in the Freehand, Studio, on the 2nd Fl., is the all day cafe until 11 p.m.

Empellon Midtown wouldn't work at that price point tho. (Tho it would give the Seattlites a cram session in hedge fund bro culture)

 

I like the Atoboy idea.

 

$23 for two lengua tacos at Empellon Taqueria? Yeah, I'd say my budget would be blown long before the typical number of tacos I eat. While acknowledging that I'm from a backwater city, that's stupid.

Well, that lengua is just a Tuesday night special, I assume it’s dolled up a bit. It’s also the most expensive taco they offer at that location.

 

But Empellon Midtown is totally doable at $100/pp.

 

Say:

Queso Fundido or Cabbage Salad ($18) to share

An order of the most expensive tacos, octopus or pastrami ($22)

Two entrees - say, the pork belly and sea bream ($36 each)

Two $8 desserts

 

That’s a decent meal, $128 before tax/tip. With one person who doesn’t drink, easily doable under $200 with a couple beers for the one drinker. If you’re not into desserts scrap ‘em and get another order of tacos.
