dinner for 9 on a weeknight

  • 2

I have to arrange a dinner for a mixture of friends and clients and want to find a good restaurant that won't be outrageously expensive. I had hoped for Blue Hill, as it's good, exciting food without being too trendy or too stodgy, but they don't think they can accommodate a party of our size because of another booking that night. Any good suggestions like Blue Hill? Or, ideally, a little less expensive? (I don't think east village is right for this group - west village, tribeca, soho, chelsea would all be great.) Thanks for the suggestions!

  1. Despite it's being in the East Village, how about Hearth? I think the food fits the description of what you are looking for. Service is first rate, and when we were there, several tables were occupied by large groups.

    In Chelsea, I've not managed to get to Red Cat yet, but from what I've read about it on this board (+ the short video I've seen on the Savory New York website), it might be a good option for you.
