family dinner in west village? help!

my brother lives on 14th and sixth--do you have any recs for a place nearby for 6 people?

I'm feeling a little desperate because I'm supposed to meet them tonight and all my usuals don't seem as accomodating for the larger party.

we're going to be meeting the girlfriend, so casual to keep the pressure off.

  1. It's difficult to make recommendations without knowing which are your "usuals," what cuisine(s) you prefer for this occasion, and what your per person budget is. That said...

    I've not been to Crispo, but it's on 14th, b/t 7th & 8th, and it gets volumes of praise re: its Italian food from other Hounds.

    If your family likes fish and seafood, Blue Water Grill is on the corner of Union Sq. W. & 16th. I've always found the food there to be nicely-prepared and, while it's architecturally smashing, it's still a casual place.

    1. How about Le Zie, Da Andrea, or Cafe Asean?

      1. Check out Piccolo Angolo...this place will definately keep the preassure off and the food is great.

          You might consider The Knickerbocker on University & 9th, which seems to work for most occasions and the food is great.
