Help please NYC Chowhounds! I'm a midwest chowhound visiting Manhattan next week. I have an 8:00 dinner reservation at Balthazar on Wednesday. Any suggestions on where my wife and I should go for a pre-dinner cocktail? Somewhere near Balthazar would be best. We are 30-somethings looking for an upscale but comfortable place to have a drink. Any nice places in that area, or should we just go to Balthazar early and have a drink there. Thanks for all advice!
