I don't know the price, but you should try the Chinatown Ice Cream Factory. Their black sesame ice cream is delicious

Affordable, non-adventurous restaurant in Manhattan

@gargupie: they are from Argentina. So I wouldn't do steaks, since they get better at home, and no Asian food. I think American and European is safe enough.

@kcijones001, Otto was already on my list! The only problem is getting in.

Affordable for us would be around $15, not including drinks for an entree and maybe a shared appetizer.

I would make a fruit tart filled with pastry creme. Delicious, but with a healthy note.

Affordable, non-adventurous restaurant in Manhattan

Some out-of-town friends are visiting and would like to go out for dinner for a birthday celebration. Unfortunately, the foreign exchange is not in their favor and on top of that, they are not adventurous eaters, so thai food and soup dumplings are out.

I tried the Sabars' ones and was very disappointed.
