In late March, I'm hosting people for dinner who will be staying at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Battery Park City. The dinner will be only an hour or two after their arrival at the hotel. So, they would prefer to "walk" to dinner rather take a cab to some other neighborhood in the city.
Any chowhound recommendations for a place walkable from Embassy Suites? Don't want a dress up or too formal place, but any style/ethnicity and price point are ok. Delicious with fun/lively atmosphere (i.e. not deserted after dark) is the goal.
Thanks for your recommendations.
