Hi everyone,
I am looking for suggestions for a great girls' night out in Manhattan. We would all be coming in from the 'burbs and would like to go somewhere special. Not crazy expensive, but doesn't have to be cheap either. We are all people who work in some part of the restaurant industry...so the musts are
~good service
~great food
~cool, but not "too cool for school" atmosphere
~good wine and bevs
Look forward to reading your responses!

    If there are six or more of you, you could make a reservation at Tia Pol and avoid the wait. Amazing tapas and really fun to share with a group. Their wine list is awesome too as is their red and white sangria. Enjoy!

      I love Tia Pol but I'm not sure sitting on those stools is what you'd be looking for if you want to hang out and shmooze. Agave in the Village works for groups. Food is really good and so are the drinks. They seem to cater to large parties.

        Rememember it is only groups that can reserve the large tables in back. Only way I know of to avoid the stools.

            Note that The Orchard is still byob (I think). The Orchard's sister restaurants Apizz and Peasant have liquor licenses and are also wonderful.

              Go here for the apertivo

              The wine bar also offers "aperitivo" Tuesday through Friday from 5pm to 7pm, featuring three flights and unlimited antipasti for $15.

              Since its ladies night out I also recommend

              Can't go wrong with Charlie Palmer.

              Tuesday Night is Ladies Night!
              Tuesday Ladies Evening
              Ladies are welcome to Metrazur on Tuesday nights to sip selected martinis for $4.50, cocktails and wine for reduced pricing, all night, every week, every Tuesday...

              Let me know if you can get me a fun job in the food industry.
