Christmas Eve dinner, West Village, Soho or other

korgy Dec 23, 2010 08:08 AM

well, this is pretty vague -- apologies in advance -- but i rarely eat in Manhattan in recent years (with so much in Brooklyn now).

looking for early Christmas Eve dinner, around 6 PM, for 4 persons. (taking in-town relatives to church Xmas Eve service in midtown -- they will be touring downtown in the day however)

looking for casual, comfortable setting, good food, American, French, homey, fresh food -- whatever -- my ideal would have been Blue Hill, but with entrees in mid-30s and sides in upper teens,, it's a little out of my price range.

Danal is possibility for atmosphere.

      i should mention that several of us don't eat red meat or poultry --so seafood or veggie is a plus.

        thanks loratliff. Little Owl is booked up, as is Lupa. looks like i'm sticking with my Danal reservation, which i now feel lucky to have gotten so late in the game this morning.

        they have a stew menu for Christmas Eve (boulliabase, cassoulet, etc).

        reviews in recent years have been mixed -- and some people have a problem with the service -- but this place has been around for years, and it's large and has homey French country atmosphere. i have a feeling it will be liked.
