A restaurant recommendation I can't really come up with
An email from a friend —
my brother is graduating from highschool tomorrow, and I'm trying to think of a fun, interesting restaurant to go to with the family + grandmothers tomorrow evening, preferably (obviously), downtown (manhattan)
any ideas?? someplace that could fit about 8 people at a table, and would take reservations, credit cards, and grandmothers, and still be fun ...
I know you guys are up for challenges !
Buddakan. As long as everyone likes "Chinese food", they'll love the food here. The space is large and impressive, the prices aren't too over-the-top (we don't have any indication of budget needs, however), and the seating is comfortable. I think it could be fun for anyone, not just the grad. Only caveat: the room is a bit dark. I wouldn't recommend it for those with vision problems.
If Buddakan is too exotic, I would suggest somewhere like Balthazar, or for Italian, maybe Otto, as per LB's suggestion.
