    Yeah, I would have gone to Chinatown, probably. Or Arturo's, as thegforceny mentioned (not Jane, though). So, where did you go, and how was it?

      The night did not flow as I had expected-We were a group of 6 that went to the Blood Manor Haunted House.Because we waited a long time to do this it messed up any plans for something decent.We wound up taking a walk to find something and went to a bar/restaurant across from the prior mentioned Aqua Grill----Thik it was called the Soho Room-Mediocre bar food but a good cold beer after being on our feet for a few hours.What was bizarre was that a wedding party of about 40 came into the small place after we got there-would never had expected that but made it a fun hangout

      You are not in the Little Italy / Chinatown area.

      You have DOZENS of Soho and Village options though.

      Look on OT for the following;

      Raoul's
      Aquagrill
      The Dutch
      Hundred Acres
      Blue Ribbon
      Boqueria

      Miss Lily's
      Jane
      Lupa
      Arturos

      I could go on.........
