Bhatti is a nice Indian restaurant in Murray Hill that gets crazy busy, so make a reservation, get there on time, and go heavy on the kebabs (their specialty). But most importantly, bring some wine. This spot is BYOB, and you can have an ideal affordable date here by filling your table with dal, spicy meats, naan, and whatever wine you decide to bring along.

Simon & The Whale
Simon and The Whale is the main restaurant at the Freehand Hotel, and it’s the sort of place where you can eat great food and run into an ex.
Barbounia is definitely not our jam. It’s way too expensive for what they’re serving, and the grandiose and gaudy decor makes it feel like some sort of vaguely Mediterranean performance hall. Like at any moment one of the bus boys might start juggling.
Albion isn't like the rest of the Murray Hill bars, which is to say that you'll actually want to come here for a beer.
