Help a nerd find a really cool restaurant bar in the Village/Soho-ish
Friends are visiting NYC from Rome and they want to meet us for drinks on Sunday late afternoon somewhere in Manhattan. I used to know the scene, but now I have two kids and live in Brooklyn so I am largely out of the loop. I'm looking for a bar that has great drinks and a good atmosphere/scene. Extra points for trendy but not in an annoying way, if that makes sense. I put Village/Soho in the title to narrow it down a bit, but actually we're flexible on the neighborhood.
