Dinner for 4, Sat night NYC. Where?

Looking for great cocktails to start the evening and then a delicious lingering fun dinner with another couple. Anywhere in the city works for us. Not too loud but some people watching and activity a+.

Just a fun night out focusing on the food and atmosphere. Pricing can be moderate to semi high. NOT Per Se pricing.

  1. Da Silvano, Asia de Cuba, Nobu Next Door (although that one probably will not be lingering)

      I was going to suggest Asia de Cuba as well, but it is definitely a loud place. Great for people watching though.

          For future reference, what are your reviews of Megu?

          1. re: pulled pork

            Megu is a great place for fun and "to-see-and-to-be-seen" type of dining. The decor is magnificent and very chic, so that itself will generate enough conversations with your friends over the course of dinner and afterwards. I found their kobe beef dishes to be better than the others, and most dishes tend to be quite small. They have some interesting preparation like grilling on a stone, etc. and therefore it is a fun experience, but it is not a "serious" dining occasion (and that I mean like tasting menu at say Jean George and such). The dishes are pricey for its portion, and your bills add up very quickly.

            I think it is worth going when you want to hang out with some friends and have some fun and good time, but not the right place for a culinary experience. That said, the food is better than most of those gimmicky gigantic places like Taos or Ono.
