Supper – great restaurant in the East Village

Corner Bistro – famously fantastic burgers and beer in the West Village

Shake Shack is a must

For Brunch I HIGHLY recommend Clinton Street Bakery, there’s a line, but it’s all New Yorkers and it is DEFINITELY worth it.

I love Angelica’s Kitchen. It’s a casual, non-pretentious BYOB (w/ a $6 corkage fee, unfortunately) about a 10 minute walk from Union Square (and the Trader Joe’s wine shop, where I always stop on the way!). All their food is super-fresh, organic and affordable. I always try things there that I never would have thought of and end up loving it! Tried dessert for the first time last week and they had an amazing blueberry pie served with lavendar custard. Also I’d reccommend buying some of their homemade brittle to go and having it as breakfast or a snack the next day!

If you like Mexican, I’d suggest Dos Caminos. They have a couple of locations around the city, so I’d google it to see what’s near you. It’s a little pricey but I went there for my birthday last year and loved it!

Also, NYC restaurant week is going on until labor day… you get 3 courses for $35 so you can go to some really nice places w/out breaking the bank. At the top of my list is Butter and Le Cirque, but I’d check out the website for inspiration! Good luck and have fun in NYC! πŸ™‚

@HappyJax: It is family style and the portions are more like appetizer size.  What we did was ordered a few things and shared.  One dish won’t be enough for one person.  The food is great quality though.

Supper is a nicer place for dinner, but in the hip/downtown so we pretend we don’t care way. It is where I ALWAYS bring my out of town guests, and they go “Oh! We love it, it’s so New York.” It is Italian food, but regional, northern Italian, so not necessarily things you are familiar with. The downside is no reservations, so you always wait and the bar is always crowded. Here’s the Menu:

My Future In-Laws (very near future) went to Maloney and Porcelli last weekend for their anniversary.  It is a steakhouse in Mid-town.  They have a special Friday and Saturday and Sunday nights that is 3 courses and wine for $75.  They said it was great.   http://www.maloneyandporcelli.com/weekendwinedinner.php

I have a tooon of recs! I”ll break them down by neighborhood πŸ™‚ 

UWS: Salumeria Rossi (italian tapas), Telepan (amazing food, on the more upscale/pricey end, but not too crazy, and definitely worth it), Sushi of Gari (there’s also one on the UES–best sushi in the city, I think)

Hell’s Kitchen area:Whym or Eatery (owned by the same people, good food and drinks), Kashkeval (yummy mediterranean food), Taboon (more expensive but very good, kind of in an isolated location but worth the walk)

Chelsea:Cookshop (right by the highline, which you should also check out), Trestle on Tenth (cute outdoor garden area), Boqueria (great traditional-ish spanish tapas)

Village area/downtown: Alta (great tapas), Artichoke Basille pizza (if you like artichokes and you like cheese, this place is for you), Jane (great place for brunch), In Vino (amaaazing italian food in a really cute setting)

Re: Stanton Social–the food IS fairly good, however, be prepared to wait a long time for a table and have to shout in order to have a conversation. People mainly go there for the “scene”, not so much for the food. I personally have vowed never toreturn after waiting over an hour for a 9:30 reservation.
