I'm going to be in New York with my parents for the weekend and my flight is arriving on Friday evening. I have a reservation for Lupa at 10pm, but that's pretty close to my arrival time, so I'd like to have a backup in case I don't make it. I've been doing a lot of research and here's my list of restaurants that seemed interesting and good:
La Bonne Soupe
Which one of these would you choose for a late dinner? First priority is food quality, of course, but this is my first trip to New York in many years and I'd like to go somewhere that will make a good first impression (i.e. it would be nice if it's a place that's still populated and pleasant, but not rowdy or deafening, at 11pm).
