Need "beautiful place with good crowd" like Buddakan for out-of-town guest

jen223 | May 23, 2011 01:55 PM

I have a friend in town from Hong Kong who loved Buddakan and wants to go to a similarly "beautiful place with good crowd". I want good food. More important is what she wants, but why can't we both be happy? I need a reservation for 6 people this Friday night, price isn't an issue (except Per Se or Masa prices), all cuisines should be fine, location not as important but would be good to go somewhere we can get drinks afterwards nearby. Think girls' night out on the town for girls who want a great scene. We're all around 30 in case that matters. i usually care more for the food so am not an expert on what the hot spots are these days.

Any suggestions?

My thoughts are:
Locanda Verde (never but have heard good things)
Waverly Inn (but only if one of you have some secret way of getting a reservation)
Morandi (although I personally think it's overrated)
Megu (is the Tribeca location still popular?)
The Robert (cool space, but is there a scene there?)
Standard Grill?
Stanton Social?
