moderately priced restaurant in Chelsea or West Village
We are entertaining 2 other couples next weekend and are looking for a moderately priced restaurant with really good food that is reasonably quiet. Any suggestions?
Not sure how quiet it is but Vento in the Meatpacking District is a good option because it is so resonably priced. They have good pizza and pastas and a good wine list. I just recently went to Scarpetta, which was excellent, but it is definitely not moderately priced. It is on the higher end.
Otto (took my parents here because my dad has noise issues)
Moustache (very good Middleeastern and very reasonable, cash only though)
These aren't as quiet, but I wouldn't say they're loud:
Fig & Olive in Meatpacking
Spotted Pig (since you're entertaining guests this is very "NY" as well)
Malatesta. Cheap. Cute. Decent wine. Great food. Great location near the river.
649 Washington St, New York, NY 10014
Unfortunately, quiet can be hard to comeby in the city. La lucheonette, might be a good option 10th avenue, around 17th/18th street. It's a cute homey french place, moderately priced, good food, i really enjoyed the lamb chops, seared fois gras, and delicate salads there, the sides leave a bit to be desired - but it's a great place to catch up with friends, as it's fairly quiet and moderately priced.
