I'm going on a Double-Date tonight on the Upper East Side. I'm looking for some place fun and relaxing...upbeat, maybe some live music...for dinner and or drinks. Not too expensive, but atmosphere is of primary concern here.
I'll take rec's for Dinner places, Drink places, or places that would be good for both. All Cuisine's are welcome..(cajun, continental, mexican, sushi, thai)..but FUN is the target. Oh, and not so loud that conversation is impossible.
Some how I ended up in charge of planning the evening, even though I live in the East Village and rarely have the need to venture north of 23rd st. A Friend and his girlfriend are visiting NYC. He is a beer-aficionado, so a place with a good beer selection is a plus.
Out of my neighborhood, and therefore - my element.
