my bf is coming into town on friday (haven't seen him for 2 weeks - long distance sucks!) and we want to "splurge" a bit (for us) and go out to a nice dinner. Any recommendations for a good restaurant for Friday night in the East Village or Lower East Side that will take reservations for 10:30pm and will come to about $100 for the two of us, including drinks and a tip? It doesn't necessarily have to be romantic, but good food is definitely a requirement! He suggested upscale mexican (Mercadito?) or (thinking out loud) what kind of a chance would I have of getting into Supper on Friday night at this time, as I know they don't take reservations?
Any and all rec's are greatly appreciated!
