We're a group of 4 mid-30ish ladies, professionals, and best friends reuniting in NYC for a girls weekend in April; we'll be staying in the Meatpacking District and are looking for some suggestions on happening/hot restaurants and lounges/bars/clubs for Friday and Saturday night. Something upscale and sophisticated as we're looking to treat ourselves. Thanks in advance :)

      STK will probably suit your needs.

        I should mention I've been to NYC several times, and some of the places we've already tried include: Spice Market, Buddakan, and La Esquina. We're looking for something similar in vibe, but perhaps new and happening right now?
        Also - some of the other ladies aren't so well acquainted with NYC, so what would you suggest are must-try "restaurants of the moment"?

          If you still mean in that area: Standard Grill, Del Posto. Bill's Burgers for hangover bite.

                Abe and Arthur is trendy and good for spotting celebs (or at least it was a few years ago), but the food is nothing special and it's rather pricey.

                  The food is good at Catch and decent at B&E depending on what you order. It is great for girls night out.

                  Also check out the Darby. Great music and the food is good.
