Dinner Tonight - Upper East Side - 3 Gals Getting Out of the 'burbs

Zoe19 Mar 29, 2008 10:26 AM

I'm in charge of picking a place for dinner for 3 gals who are getting out of the CT burbs for an evening. The occasion is a 40th birthday. Not looking to go crazy but something fun. Steaks and fish. Bustling atmosphere. Any suggestions??

    One of my friends and i sometimes come in from Long Island and go to Maya, on 1st in the 60's. Upscale Mexican, noisy and hopping on a Saturday night.

      What about Balthazar? The steak is really good there and they have nice seafood platters.

        The o.p. is asking for something on the UES. Balthazar is in SoHo.
