Meeting up with a friend on Saturday for dinner and looking for a recommendation. Looking for a restaurant with great food and a sociable ambience. Have been to Tao the last two visits into Manhattan and loved the place but am thinking of trying some place new. Does not necessarilly have to be Asian. Unfortunately, steak is out of the question and my friend does not feel like schlepping down to the Meatpacking area....can you recommend a couple of places that would meet this criteria?...we plan on ending up at Club Macanudo after dinner.
