Graduation dinner recommendations

detroit1010 Apr 28, 2013 06:07 PM

We will be celebrating a graduation within the next few weeks. Trying to pick a quiet place for a party of 6 to eat dinner, probably either Italian or American. Must have great food for both meat-eaters and vegetarians. Price not a limiting factor short of Per Se and the like. We've recently been to, and loved Craft, L'Apico, ABC Kitchen.

Was considering Sfoglia but looking for other suggestions.

    What day are you planning this get-together for? The question is salient because the level of loudness in certain places can change radically between weeknights and weekends.

      The dinner will be on a Thursday evening.

        Abruptly closed. Surprising.

        I think Maialino would be great for Italian. Refined atmosphere but noit stuffy. Great food and service. Special enough to be celebratory but not a loud, overly buzzy place. The menu has plenty of fresh vegetable antipasti and salad choices, a few pasta dishes with no meat, and plenty of fish dishes if your vegetarians eat it.
