I was hoping for some help from the board because I'm drawing a complete blank. I need to organize a dinner for eight 30-ish year old guys, looking for a restaurant that's a bit upmarket but not too stuffy or pretentious, has a livelier atmosphere, centrally located (downtown or Whyte-ish) where we can have some dinner and drinks before going out for the evening. My first two choices were Corso 32 or Niche since I've been to neither and hear great things, but neither has room for us on Saturday. The Bothy seems like it could be interesting (albeit a bit further south than I'd like). Any other ideas?
