We'll be in Greenwich village for a wedding this weekend (coming from Boston), and we'll have two meals on our own. Friday night and saturday night. Were hoping to go to Babbo, but I guess I should have called much earlier -- they are all booked. Any suggestions for good places to go (where I can still get a reservation)?
Here is what we are looking for:
Price: up to $50/person for food (without wine, tax, tip).
Cuisine: Italian, French, New American, Mediterranean, or really good, interesting bar food (where we can have several appetizers as a meal).
We are not big on atmosphere or food esthetics (we don't mind them, but we don't seek them out either). But we are obsessive about the food (seasoning, doneness, choice of ingredients, etc).
Something in Greenwich village would be great, but we'll travel for great food.
Thanks so much for your help!
