Is there anything like AVEC in NYC

We are making our annual 4 day spring trip to NY in mid may, staying in Tribeca, although that does not limit us. We have eaten at most of the "foodie" places like Per Se - but are looking for something similar to AVEC in Chicago, for those who know,stunning, simple rustic great food, no pretention or 3 month wait lists, is there anything similar in Manhattan.
Was also wondering about Terrior, Bar Jamon,... two years back we had a great meal at Hearth, is it still the same??? Also been reading about EMP and Gramercy.....
Many thanks in advance.

i am obviously a newbie
realize I did not give enough details, so thank you for your kind reply and the links
when we travel we like to find the best each city has to offer,
have been lucky enought to experience places like Fat Duck, Per Se, Jean Georges, L'Apreg. Le Louis IX........not to say it has to be expensive to be good, was in Chicago last fall, went to Charlie Trotters, actually had diner with the man himself, everything was perfect, but somehow lacked soul.......the best meal was at Avec... Blackbirds sister restaurant...simple cool great service......
anything similar in SF??

Thanks Again

really looking forward to our visit, also heading down to Post Ranch Inn for a few days so will get to experience Big Sur,
Saving Napa for another trip

keep you posted.

In Search of Romantic, Stellar Restaurant

Scaramouche for romance and view of the City..great service and food

In Need of Reliable Restaurant Recommendations

OK, I signed up to Chowhound just to reply to your email.
First off welcome to TO.......I

Sushi - go to Kaji Sushi, let me say that again, go to Kaji Sushi. $40 cab ride ($20 US) sit at the bar and be preapred for some of the best sushi you will every have......I hate to send out -of -towners there, since its in a suburban wasteland, but if you a sushi fan (as I am) its worth it.

Noce is always reliable for good italian, for a good lunch - Terroni's on Queen.
Dim Sum - Queens Quay - Pink Pearl on Sunday.......

Enjoy !
