Looking for suggestions for Friday night dinner for 4. Bringing friends visiting from FL so looking for:
trendy scene w/ decor
good bar that we could get a drink at before or after
plus but not necessary would be something w/ a decent club attached
nabe where w/ good bars so meatpacking, soho okay nothing uptown/gramercy/etc.
good food but would choose scene over food
was thinking of la esquina, buddakan, spice market, or morimoto-type places but wondering if i'm missing a good option. would prefer something that's been around and is reliable than something brand new.
