My husband and I will be in NYC at the end of September for an anniversary trip - we have been many times before, but it's been a while so we are hopelessly out of date. Would love some ideas for late night dining on a Friday (we are going to a show that ends close to 10pm). It doesn't need to be in the theatre district, and in fact, would prefer somewhere else. We are looking for somewhere with great food and a kind of cool atmosphere, good wine selection and/or cocktails - although we are almost 40 so don't want to be the oldest people there by 10 years :-) We love small plates, especially at that hour, but that is not a requirement. I notice lots of places will take a 10:30 reservation, but I hate it when you go late and feel like the place is closing up around you. Here are some ideas I have from various sources, but I am pretty clueless and could use some local chowhound perspective.
Fig & Olive (meatpacking)
L'Atelier (although this probably closes too early)
We hardly ever get away from our little kids, so I don't want to screw this up! Thanks!
