I am looking to make a reservation for 5 for a birthday dinner in a couple of weeks. My parents will be there so nothing too hip or loud. Was thinking something moderately priced with good food and a pleasant atmosphere (i believe both crispo and five points have gotten pretty good reviews). Called 71 Clinton Fresh Food but they can't take a reservation for more than 4 (not sure if it's just for that night or always).
Is there one i should choose over the other? Or is there someplace else that I should try?
Normally for this type of dinner I would go to Giorgio's of Gramercy but I've been there many times and this is for my birthday so I'd like to try someplace I've never been.
