    August, Freeman's and the Spotted Pig will fit all your requirements but, the wait can be a killer if you go there on the latter side..after 6:30pm specially now that it gets dark early.

    cookshop is a good place as well and there's normally an available table on opentable around 6pm and en japanese will work too and they have a newish bar section up-front specializing on flavored shocu (sp?) drinks (like infused vodkas) that can be a fun place to chill while waiting for a table...though I don't think getting a table for 4 will be a problem there.

      supper is a good option - probably will be a wait about an hour on friday night, but good wine bar to wait at

        blt or blt steak
        buddakan (hard rez)
        thor(more atmosphere than i liked)

        some ideas off the top of my head

        all not necessarily transendent, but very good and all have i think the atmosphere you seek.
