Going with a large group. First night is drinks at Mix Lounge and dinner at Stripsteak. Second night is sushi at Sushi Roku. Third night is a big group dinner at Aquaknox.
Would like something nice and quiet (I expect the Stripsteak and Sushi Roku nights to be anything but quiet) for a group of 6-8 for our fourth night. Would prefer something with a tasting menu option, but a notch down in price from Picasso (I think we blew about $450/couple last time we were there). I really want to try Bartolotta, but that would be 3 nights in a row of seafood and the non-seafoodies may revolt if we do that.
Considering Le Cirque, maybe the new Sinatra (worried about lack of reviews upon which to make this call). Any other ideas or comments on the Le Cirque/Sinatra ideas? For anyone who's been, is the Sinatra dining room quiet or more boisterous/scene-y?
For frame of reference, when I'm talking quiet I mean even more sedate than Picasso, which was lovely in every way, but also a very large room with lots of attendant commotion. Le Cirque's small dining room seems ideal, but it doesn't look much less expensive, if at all, than Picasso and price may be an issue for a few folks in our group.
