Not Inoteca, not Otto, but...

We've got friends coming in from out of town on Friday and we'd like to take them somewhere new -- they really enjoyed Otto and 'Inoteca the last time they visited, so we were thinking something in the same vein. I called Lupa, but they're booked solid (though we might still try to do a walk-in). Any neighborhood is fine and Italian would be ideal. We're definitely hoping for the chance to share a lot of dishes amongst ourselves and we'd prefer to have a leisurely meal where we can dine and chat (not that it needs to be super quiet or anything).

  1. I really would urge you to go to park slope for al di la but barring that, crispo is the new favorite here on chowhound and its right up your alley.

    1. I can easily second the Crispo rec - such a fantastic place.

        1. Del Posto Enoteca (the bar @ Del Posto)--they only take reservations day of, so you can definitely get one if you call right when they start taking them (9:45 am, I think?). $41 4-course prix fixe plus the excellent $19 wine pairing.

          1. thanks all for the recommendation. We managed to book Crispo for Friday... looking forward to it. Will report back..
