Place to have 25-yr college reunion with old boyfriend and best friends in Chelsea/West Village

There will be 5 of us. I want a place with good food that won't rush us out and where we can hear eachother speak. On the stuffy vs. homey continuum, I want some place comfortable.

      Moran's on 10th Ave & 20th ST is a good choice. Theyve got big tables, a few different rooms, decent food and some ambiance.

        This one's easy.
        Crispo all the way.

          Crispo's a good option - aside from fantastic food they also have some semi-private rooms which would be a good fit for the size of your group.

          Another option is Alta - tapas/small plates so it's meant for lingering. The place has great atmosphere.

    2. You can try It's a Dominican Thing on19th street. I know someone who had a reunion there & loved it- good food & better prices.

      1. Chelsea: Red Cat; Suenos
        W/ Village: Blue Ribbon Bakery, downstairs grotto-like space

          1. More central Village (70 Prince street) - Savoy. Definitely comfortable, closer to homey but really good food. I've had truly fantastic desserts there!
