Three old friends and I get together each year for a holiday dinner. In the past we have gone to places like Rolfs and Petes Tavern. This year was supposed to be Bridge Cafe, but Hurricane Sandy had other ideas.
We are flexible on cuisine. As you can tell from our past choices, we are big on classic New York City places that are not tourist magnets. The restaurant must accept reservations. We also would be willing to spend more this year if necessary.
