I have to arrange a dinner for a mixture of friends and clients and want to find a good restaurant that won't be outrageously expensive. I had hoped for Blue Hill, as it's good, exciting food without being too trendy or too stodgy, but they don't think they can accommodate a party of our size because of another booking that night. Any good suggestions like Blue Hill? Or, ideally, a little less expensive? (I don't think east village is right for this group - west village, tribeca, soho, chelsea would all be great.) Thanks for the suggestions!
