my boyfriend and i would like to take our friends to a great restaurant as an engagement present. the restaurant should be some what of a dressy atmosphere for a friday or saturday night, below 14th Street, french or italian. ideally it would be great for 50 per person. thanks for the suggestions!
some restaurants that first come to mind are lupa (but i think that they have been there). what about lucien? i have heard god things about that place too.
