Day after thanksgiving restaurant confusion.

  • f

I am suffering the misfortune of having to plan a dinner at a restaurant for my family and inlaws(a total of 12 people). We need a restaurant downtown that is not too expensive (around $35 a person total for two courses.) These are the most difficult people I have ever had the pain of eating with and have already put down my first choice(Ithaka)for being too adventurous(If it's not Italian they become easily confused. I am deliberating right now between Borgo Antico, Five Points, or Figs. Has anyone been to any of these places. Is one more accomodating to large parties than the others.

Thanks in advance for your help and sympathy.

  1. I don't think Figs is open yet. I walked by the Union Square W hotel site on tuesday nite and it was still under construction.

      I believe that location is going to be an Olives, not a Figs. Figs, so far as I know, is just at LaGuardia.

        oops. Sorry for the confusion. My message should have been about Olives.
