my girlfriends and i are coming next wednesday and looking for a place to have a light meal preferably to sit at the bar. something lively midtown would be great.

  1. NYC is a great city for bar dining...

    If you tell us some preferences on cuisine and budget, you'll get more suggestions...also, how many people? (some places it's tricky enough to even snag two seats at the bar because of popularity)...

        Four people at the bar can be awkward I've found. Harder to have a conversation, and hard to find four seats together.

          I'd say go to Scarpetta and get a 4-top in the front, no reservations bar area
