Which one would you choose for out of town guests who would love fun, good food and a great atmosphere? Or any others you could suggest it will be next Thurdsay evening, Thanks.

Peniche is excellent fun for a group, and definitely best value of the three. And although all chowhounders seem to think BLT sucks, I (along with the thousands of diners who make the BLT franchise successful) disagree. Sure, it's very expensive, but every experience I've had there has been outstanding (except for a lackluster brunch once). It has a nice, chic decor with a fairly bustling bar so it can be good for large groups as well. As far as Antipasti, my experiences have ranged from good to very good. They have a fantastic bar area with an antipasti bar in the front, and a very nice outdoor terrace for dining as well. It certainly can be considered overpriced. I would offer a suggestion to head up to 42 (atop the Ritz) to the lounge for drinks, and maybe a couple of small plates.
