Well, Midtown and GV are not really close to each other. Do you mean Midtown on the East Side or West Side? 

Midtown West:

I would try BLT Market or Brasserie 8 1/2. This is a pretty touristy area, unless you go over to like 9th Avenue. 

Downtown:

Sooo many! I would try Commerce, Kingswood, Perry Street, Perilla (top chef winner’s restaurant!), just to name a few. But there are seriously so many places to go. 

In case you find yourself in a different area some of my general faves are Marea (probably one of the best restaurants we’ve been to), Alta (if you guys like tapas), any of David Burke’s restaurants (Kitchen, Townhouse, Fishtail…they’re all amazing), Gramercy Tavern. You could also go to one of Tom Colicchio’s places (I’ve heard craft is better than colicchio and sons). 

Sorry, none of these are Indian, since we don’t really eat it 🙂

@hilsy85:  I second your recs!  David Burke Kitchen particularly has a delicious pre fixe brunch. 

Annie, make sure you take advantage of the glory that us brunch in NY.  I also recommend Jane (make a reservation!), Kittichai for an amazing Thai twist on brunch, and Hundred Acres for a heartier but gourmet choice. 

Curry Kitchen on 8th Street in Greenwich Village is delicious – very unassuming from the street, but cute inside and SO yummy!

Can you please go to Quality Meats.  I know you didn’t say steak but they seriously have the best food ever.

For Indian, there’s Curry Hill (Lex and 28th, Midtown East) or Curry Row (E 6th St, East Village). Those areas have the highest concentration of Indian restaurants.

I just went to The Little Owl recently that was fantastic for New American. I love Market Table, also in the West Village. Northern Spy and Home in the East Village is great too.

For Indian, you should check out Devi. It isn’t in any of the areas you mentioned, but the exec chef/owner was on Top Chef Masters, and the food there is amazing.

I 2nd everything hilsy85 suggested and will add Tamarind for a great indian place! Midtown is a pretty general location, if you want something kind of touristy try the time warner center – there are a ton of restaurants like porter house, a voce columbus and landmarc which are all great. Midtown east is pretty much all steakhouses and more business type restaurants.
