Fun Restaurant + Quiet Enough for Good Conversation
I have two friends from out of town who have never been to NYC before coming in for the weekend. I'm trying to think of a place to go for dinner Saturday night. I'm looking for somewhere that is fun/cool/not lame but isn't so loud that we can't talk - we're high school friends who haven't seen each other for about a year. One of them hates tapas. Lupa was suggested, and seems like a good fit, but they don't have availability for tomorrow. Any other ideas?
Price point: around 50-60 bucks each with drinks. Location: below 14th street.
