Downtown birthday dinner suggestions?

tamasha Jul 2, 2008 06:14 PM

I know this is possibly a boring post, but I'm trying anyway.

Here are the deets, as they say:
A group of late-20s and early-30s people who have all lived (and therefore eaten) in NYC for 5-10 years. Most of us live downtown (below 23rd) or in BK. We will be celebrating a 27th birthday on a weekday. Not a super important birthday, but want to get together anyway.

Should be below 23rd, with several wine options that are not overly overpriced (if you know what I mean). Not necessarily looking for a serious meal, either. We're expecting that people will be showing up at various different times given work schedules.

Here's what we like:
Tia Pol
Gottino
dell'anima
La Esquina
Morandi
Les Enfants Terrible
Grape and Grain (which is where we'll go if there are no other suggestions)

I think that's all...

    Are you looking for new suggestions or looking to decide between the places you've been before?
    If you're interested in trying something new, I had a good meal recently at Boqueria.
