Astor Place recommendations for tonight
Friend from Paris is visiting. She doesn't like super casual restaurants. So what would be reasonable in price but not too East Village-y in the Astor Place area? Only time I've been at The Smith for dinner, my eardrums almost burst! But something similar would be great, without all the din.
I haven't been, but Apiary might work. Or Vandaag, where I have been (I wasn't crazy about it, but the bread and the cocktails were very good).
