I am taking a small group, 5-6, of colleagues out for dinner during the week. We will be staying at the Ritz and would like to walk to a nearby restaurant if possible.
We'd like a place where we can chat, so not too noisy, but a lively, nice atmosphere would be fun. We'd prefer not to be overly formal or stuffy.
We're very eclectic eaters, and some of the group travels quite a bit, so something a little different would be nice, i.e. no Italian or a steak places.
Price range moderate, preferably entrees in the 20's to 30's.
