Dinner with old friend- Village/meatpacking

Heading to the spotted pig for drinks on a Thursday night to catch up with an old college friend, what's a great place nearby for a great dinner after? Like market table, but been there too much. Colicchio & sons? Is little owl too much of a romantic venue?

  1. Maybe Louro would be a good choice, or maybe Recette.

    1. Why not stay at the Spotted Pig? If that's not an option then how about The Marrow. Maybe Chez Sardine or Joseph Leonard.

        Yeah, Spotted Pig will likely have a wait, so you can kill your drink while you wait for a table.

        Little Owl isn't too romantic, but you definitely need a res.

      2. Thanks for the ideas, appreciate it!

          Minetta tavern isn't too far if you're in the mood for steak...

        2. L'artusi? They have two counters that are for walk-ins.
