Help! Pre-Bachelorette Party Dinner for 6 near 23rd and 7th this Saturday

gah! please help, hounds! after a series of miscommunications and bad planning, i need to book a place for dinner for 6 around 6pm this saturday. sigh, the horrors of weddings. thankfully it's an early dinner.

i'd really appreciate any recommendations for places that could accomodate 6, with really good food being most important, as well as fun/good ambiance (not necessarily fancy), close to 23rd and 7th ave. won't somebody rescue a bridesmaid in need? thanks for your help!

  1. Arezzo is an Italian restaurant on 22nd St., b/t 5th & 6th Avs. It's been quite some time since we ate there, but the food was very good, and I've heard nothing to indicate that that's changed. Not sure about the fun part, but the space has very attractive contemporary decor.

    Markt recently opened in its new location on 6th Av. & 21st St. I haven't been but I've heard the food is very good, and it seems to be the kind of place that would be fun.

      thank you RGR for the tips! i appreciate.

    2. Centro Vasco. It's a Basque seafood place, with great paella and big lobsters. The prices are pretty reasonable too. Have fun!

      1. It's a little further west, but The Red Cat is on 23rd and 10th if you could swing that location.

        1. You can try Tia Pol (10th Ave btw 22nd and 23rd) or Boqueria (19th St btw 5th and 6th Ave) for Spanish Tapas. One for sharing among a group, and IMO sharing tapas is always more fun than formal dining. I believe Tia Pol has a backroom, so you may be able to request that.
