Nice restaurant for Bachlorette party going to an afternoon Yankees game.

Hey all!

I am organizing a bacholorette party for one of my closest friends in New York - and I need some assistance.
She requested going to a Saturday afternoon Yankees game.
And we were thinking, instead of going back into the city, maybe there are some good eats near the stadium where we could go afterwards for a nice dinner and drinks.

We are a group of 8-12 women between the ages of 20-30.
As a group we generally enjoy a more "trendy" type of restaurant with a cool atmosphere and a good food selection. We would want something fun, but not casual.
The catch is that we probably wouldn't want to change clothes after the game.
So we probably would be dressed relatively casually.

The bachlorette hates seafood.

Thanks everyone!!

    How about Italian food? Are you looking to be around the Bronx?
    Look into this restaurant called G-bar, near the stadium and the same owner as Tosca

      Thanks!
      Im not getting too many responses!
      We are looking to be in easy distance from the Stadium - wherever that is. Not neccesarily walking distance, but a short cab ride max.

        The restaurant is called Giovanni's, as far as I know. The food is tasty, and the atmosphere is probably good for what you're looking for. It's a short drive from the stadium.
