We haven't seen each other in a long time so need a place where 6-7 people can have a moderately priced dinner in a relaxed environment where we won't be rushed out. Not too noisy either. Prefer the West Village. I'd say atmosphere comes first, then food (but it's a close second). Reservations accepted would be a plus but as long as there's a bar it wouldn't be a problem if we had to wait a while. Any type of food (except for sushi). Thanks for your suggestions.
