hi all-
looking for suggestions for dinner next Saturday night on the UES. italian/American/Mexican are the preferences but a good wine list,moderate prices (entrees less then 40$) and a comfortable vibe that lends itself to chatting are key.

      Although RGR's answers are always awesome, here are a few more suggestions:

      Italian: Tiramisu
      Mexican: Cascabel Taqueria

        not sure the last time you went to Cascabel (or if you ever went to the original a few doors up from its current location), but it's a shell of its former self now unfortunately. And that's from multiple tries on my part trying to regain the old magic.

        B Cafe is a low-key spot with a nicely done menu.

        Square Meal. And, the corkage charge is only $5 - so you can have the best wine list. Food is American. Setting is quiet. Easy to converse. Always had a good meal. Not blow your mind away good, but always good.

            Italian- Giovanni Venticinque or Felice 83. I think they are now the best in the area...
