I'm trying to decide where to go for a birthday dinner next week. I have been wanting to try No. 9 Park for a while, but the main menu is just too pricy--and the atmosphere is probably more formal than I'm interested in. I was thinking that maybe we could eat in the bar side where the prices are much more reasonable, but as I've never been there, I don't have a good sense for what it's like.
Is there typically a long wait for a seat at the bar? We'd be going on a Wednesday. Any other thoughts?
