Need recommendation for Friday dinner

nyccoffeegirl Sep 5, 2011 05:34 AM

Hi Hounds-
I have a friend visiting from London, and we are going out for dinner on Friday night. We are both moms to young children and don't get to go out as much as we used to :0
I'd like to take her somewhere fun, kinda cool with delicious food. Not tooooo loud so we can catch up. Not so hip that we feel old and frumpy.
What do you suggest???? I'll report back.

    Why not sit at the bar at Craft together? It has a wonderful cocktail program, great food, and is not loud.

      And just got three stars from Sam Sifton in the Times (William Grimes also gave Craft three stars 10 years ago) ... http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/07/din...

        just read the review. sifton is right that the hen of the woods mushrooms are fantastic. the octopus, quail, suckling pig for two, porterhouse, and pastas are also wonderful.

      Price range? Food likes/dislikes. Any part of the city in particular? And solo or with the kids?
