Have a friend in town on business, taking her out to dinner tonight (Thursday). We both consider ourselves foodies, but she also wants a "scene" in addition to a good meal. Was going to go to Wayfare but no available reservations. ideas???

  1. From a quick search on Open Table, here are some places with reservations that have good food and also a bit of a scene: Barbacco, Gitane (especially in the bar area, and they have fantastic cocktails and nice outside tables), La Mar, Perbacco (though it's a little more restrained than Barbacco, it's little sister next door), and...Wayfare Tavern, which currently has a 7:30 reservation.

    1. Barbacco, Bocadillo's, Wexler's, and Comstock Saloon should all be hopping. I'm not sure how the food is at Cigar Bar these days.

        I love Cigar Bar for the outdoor patio, but the food is at best above-average bar food. Plantains and calamari are the office favorites when we go there for happy hour.

      2. So where did you go?

          We went to Wayfare; it was perfect!

            Thanks! What did you have to eat, or was it mostly the "scene."

        2. What in the world is FiDi???
