Casual mid-week dinner for under $175 for two. Looking for wonderful food and not too noisy.

      Turks and Frogs in Tribeca is quiet, interesting, good atmosphere.
      Danube is great, but i wouldnt call it casual.
      Wolfgang is good for steak

        Danube is also very expensive, and very overpriced for the quality of food.

          Danube is also closed, and now in its place is Secession.

            Lucia, youre right I just heard that Danube closed and Secession also owned by Bouley, is excellent.

      I really loved Perilla - from appetizer to dessert everything was excellent!!! Don't forget the donuts for dessert!!
