Looking for dinner suggestions for my brother's bachelor party, where we'll be in Manhattan on a Saturday night. We're having a whole night out - with one destination in the Gramercy area - and I'm hoping for a great-but-casual dinner somewhere somewhat nearby. Trouble is, I live in LA and my knowledge of the area and the good eats in Manhattan is sorely lacking.
As for other tricky limitations: my brother is not the most adventurous eater you could ever meet and the other groomsmen may not have the budget for a super-pricey meal. That said, I still want it to be a great meal at a great place.
One thought I had was OTTO which is not too far away, but I have no idea if it's absolutely impossible to get a reservation on a Saturday night and whether it's a nice enough place for a special occassion.
Any suggestions my dear Hounds? Truly appreciated.
