Casual dinner

Sara | Aug 20, 1999 01:30 PM

Greetings from Boston!

My husband and I are going to be in NYC for one
Saturday night in September. Normally, we'd find a
fabulous restaurant and "go to town" regardless of cost
but this time, we're going out with others who prefer
casual atmospheres. In addition, cost is an issue for

So...after a fair amount of research, I decided on the
restaurant "Po" only to find out that they will be
closed for vacation....then, I picked out "Le Tableau"
but they don't take reservations and that always makes
me nervous.

So, now what? I'd like a comfortable place where we
can be casually dressed. Reservations. Good food and
wine. Moderately priced (entrees < $20 or so).

Some places I've picked up on:
il Bagatto
Cub Room Cafe
i Coppi (though, some negatives on this board,
including cost)

I've searched these messages, the NYtimes and it's hard to get a feel for
the places....

Any help would be appreciated.
