My husband meets with a discussion group on Tuesday evenings about once/month. Their most recent meeting/place was put out of commission on Sept 11, so they are looking for a new spot. They need a relatively laid back restaurant or bar, where they can reserve or reliably snag a table for 6-8 at around 7:30 and keep it throughout the evening (they have dinner and drinks and tip generously), quiet enough for serious conversation around a big table, but not so hushed that everyone in the restaurant is able to hear what they are saying (!). Casual comfortable atmosphere, tasty food. Suggestions????
