Thank you chowhounds for your answers to my question a few weeks about this place. All your comments were spot on.

Six of us dined there last night--five 17 & 18-year-old girls and me, to celebrate my daughter's birthday. It was perfect.

The pizzas are as everyone said... super thin crust, sometimes a little too crunchy, sometimes just fine, limited toppings, excellent wines, organic organic organic, mesclun salad which can easily serve three people... Excellent list of cheeses for cheeseplates.

We all enjoyed the pizza. Each girl ordered one apiece, and a few finished them off, a couple took one or two slices home. So one hungry person can finish a whole pie. That makes the place a bit more expensive than a regular pizzeria, but I think it is worth it. I had a pie with raw and carmelized onions. It was more subtle than it sounds. I could eat the crisp outside crust on mine, but one of the girls could not eat was just too hard and crunchy. So not everything is perfect, but it was purrrfectly fine for us. (Sorry couldn't resist a cat comment).

On a Saturday night there was a huge element of fun here. The place was busy (but no lines out the door). People were enjoying wine at the bar, and...this must be said... The girls were totally captivated by the servers who were very good looking well as the clientele at the bar....many more good looking guys... they were in giggly girl heaven.

Before dinner I brought the girls to Beadworks (advance reservation), a store in SoNo, where the girls actually made necklaces. If you haven't been to this place, it is well worth a trip. Incredible selection of beads. One young man was happily making a lovely necklace for his mother. I want to adopt him. The combination of Beadworks and Fat Cat makes an excellent all girls outing.
