8 foodie colleagues in town...where to eat?

Rascal21 Sep 2, 2008 01:20 PM

Hi there-

I have colleagues coming in for a meeting next week and I'm in charge of dinner plans. Where should we go?

We're looking for something with terrific food, fun/cool vibe- nothing stuffy/pretentious.

With liquor/wine (decent drinkers), probably about $100 per head.

Our office is on 5th ave/12th street and we can stick around here or head downtown?

I need suggestions for Wednesday night and Thursday night!

Thanks so much

        Thanks for your recommendations. I can't wait to go to Prune on my own.
        I've made reservations at Lupa and Hearth- any feedback? Thanks again

          hi rascal,
          i tried responding earlier but the bits failed to byte.

          anyway, lupa is a great restaurant for eight. dine family style (plates in the middle, everybody shares) and graze through the bulk of the menu. don't forget the wine!

          Hearth is a great choice. I would also look into Blue Hill.
