I am organizing a celebratory dinner for about ten 30-something new york women. We would like to experience culinary treats, drink a good amount of decent wine and possibly champagne at a restaurant where we will fit in wearing stylish cocktail dresses or something more casual also. A tasting menu, if affordable, is preferred but any other recommendations would be great as well. The evening will be the weekend of may 19th. Food is a priority, a lively atmosphere but not too loud comes second. Any suggestions? Thank you.
