Group of 18-20, avg age is late 30's, looking for good food, drinks, preferably Italian or steaks. Niles restaurant only came up as an option based on convenience since we are staying at that hotel, but hotel restaurant is probably not what we want, unless this one is somehow different than usual. Biricchino on 29th & 8th Av has a private room and seems like a good option, but would love any input.
Any thoughts on either of these or other options in the area of West 20's/30's for a Saturday evening??? Thanks in advance you regulars!
