Friends in from LA....next Saturday night
Looking for a place to go with friends next Saturday night.
Would like it to be somewhere new for me and my husband, so I have nixed Hearth, Apiary, Perilla, Kinshop, Peasant, Balaboosta, Colicchio and Sons, Dell'anima, and a bunch of other places I can't think of at the moment.
Tried but failed to get reservations at Imperial No. 9, ABC Kitchen, and Barbuto.
Our friends are staying Midtown West, so anywhere on the west side (Tribeca on up!) is fine; would go east if it's worth it:-) Since they are from LA, I am thinking Japanese and Mexican are OUT, but open to anything as long as they have some fish/veggie-friendly options. Would love to keep the budget at $60-70pp with wine......
Would love your ideas! Thanks.
Being from LA, are your friends fans of Mario Batali and Mozza? If so, maybe you can get into Manzo at Eataly. It is excellent. What about Otto?
If they are not Batali fans, how about Maialino?

re: Elizabeth E.
Our one experience at Cookshop was extremely disappointing. So-so food, haphazard service, and a very high noise level.
Two far better options in that area, imo: Bottino and Trestle on Tenth. Both have delicious food and lovely gardens for warm weather dining. OpenTable shows plenty of availability at both.
