Suggestion for Restaurant/Bar with food for a group of six

Some friends from out of town are meeting up on Saturday evening for a casual dinner/drinks. Does anyone have a suggestion for a place where the food is good and we won't have any issues if we linger.

A request was made for tapas but I'm not sure if anyplace I know of would allow for the hanging out that would follow a meal. So tapas would be fine, any type of ethnic would be good as would a bar with good bar food. One suggestion that we might go with is Hibernian Lounge as I found the snack pretty good. Not sure if it is "dinner" enough though.

Any suggestions? Friends are staying near Times Square but travel shouldn't be an issue.

  1. I love Alta for tapas, in the west village. They food is great and the atmosphere is so unique- 2 stories and an upscale yet rustic feel. They have a really nice bar area too if you want to have drinks before you sit. In terms of lingering, you could always control the pace by ordering a little at a time.
