like hatfield's but where a party of six can actually get a reservation?

I need to make a dinner reservation this Saturday for a bunch of self-proclaimed foodies. Would love to take them to Hatfield's but it's so tiny that it's really difficult to actually get that one 6-top. Is there another new-ish place that "foodies" (not 'hounds, sadly) would love?

Canele, Providence and Sona are big winners with this group, but want to try someplace new. Mid-City West and provinces eastern are all in the running.

Is Opus worth a visit?

      Grace also has a large dining room, so try them or La Terza.

        Oh, Sauce, my neighborhood buddy, are you serious about La Terza? Overpriced and overrated, no?

        Opus is a great idea, and it's a lot of fun too. Love it.

          OPUS OPUS OPUS. Ask for Karen to be your waitress. I went last Monday and she was lovely. Plus if you all get the tasting menu (3 course = $30) you can really splurge on wine.
