I am seeking your expertise on a restaurant suggestion for this Saturday night for four 30 year old guys. A good friend is about to get married, and three of us are looking to take him out for a night on the town (anywhere in Manhattan, below say 70th street).
We're looking for more of a fun rather than formal atmosphere, but with quality food. Our price range is somewhat flexible--maybe $50-60 per person excluding drinks, or more if it's a highly recommended spot. Cuisine is similarly flexible--anything goes, but we tend to enjoy Japanese/Sushi, Mexican, Gastropub fare, American, etc. We don't have a recommendation, but we also don't mind waiting a bit for a table if there's a good bar area to hang out in. Your thoughts are most appreciated, or if you have questions, let me know.
