West Village/Meatpacking for Six or Seven?

Not too noisy, not too hip. Really good food in a pleasant, laid back atmosphere. Any kind of food okay (although some of the group are from Latin America and would probably prefer food they don't find readily at home), but not too spicy. Preferably not too expensive; perhaps about $60/$70/pp including wine. Also need to be able to get a fairly last-minute res for tomorrow night since the number in the group could easily increase to eight or nine. I don't know the neighborhood well and am scouting for friends who are here on business and will be taking clients who are staying downtown out for the evening. They'll want to talk business. They care about their food. Any suggestions appreciated.

        seconded--just went here on saturday. food was great, decor was beautiful. everyone in my group really enjoyed it.

      2. if you are 6, reserve the big round booth at Blue Ribbon. (If Soho is OK with you.)

          1. Barbuto. The main dining room may be too loud/busy for your needs, but they have a private room if you're going to be a bigger group and you need quiet. Food is great.
