Pretty open but I am thinking not Asian.

  1. When? What date? What's your budget per person before tax, tip, alcohol?

      Budget is flexible within reason...not EMP range! May/June. Was considering Scarpettas.

    2. Trying again...please help with your suggestions.

        You've given no details, which is why you got no responses.

        In a city with over 10,000 dining options, the more details about your preferences you can provide, the more helpful hounds can be. Otherwise, we're just a bunch of strangers naming random places.

        Happy to do the latter but don't know if that's helpful:
        The Dutch
        Marc Forgione

        If you mean new restaurants eater ny just published their updated heatmap:

        1. If you want some awesome seafood... check out flex mussels, Crispo is great for italian and they have a big back table you can sit at that can accommodate that many people. Pizza/microbrew beer there is tobys public house which I am a big fan of. You have any other thoughts on how nice it needs to be? I just turned 30 and these would all be great options.

            crispo looks great - especially the marrow selections!

          2. Kefi is a lot of fun with a group that size AND it won't break the bank...
