Party of 6 in mid-30's -- fun dinner night out

We are a group of 6 good friends (3 couples) in our mid-30's around the country who don't get together often enough. We're looking for a good meal together -- festive/upbeat, even though we are not celebrating anything. Nothing loud or clubby like Megu, Buddakan or anywhere in the Meatpacking District. After all, we would like to be able to talk to each other without screaming across the tabe. Any recommendation?

    1. Sorry, but why does your age have anything to do with it? Good food in a reasonably quiet atmosphere is desired by most of us.

        One would think, but the quiet atmosphere is becoming more and more difficult to find in NY, with any age group. And they still want festive/upbeat.

        Maybe a steakhouse would work? Strip House has the large round tables. Maybe Odeon, or Brinkley's.

        I initially wanted to suggest Jimmy's, because this time of year, it always feels like every table is having a reunion of some kind, but it gets very loud in there.
