I love to eat; there's no doubt about that! But I also like to light up (I KNOW, terrible habit, dreadful, wretched, I'm just one step above Satan and pedophoiles and bin Laden on list of evil things, etc.)
Be that as it may, could anyone recommend a restuarant in or around Midtown Manhattan (or downtown, pref no lower than Union Square) where my friends and I could sit at a table (in bar area OK, if so, am hoping for not too loud a bar!), and eat a terrific meal and have a cigarette? We've gone out to non-smoking rests, of course, but then one of us is constantly going off to the bar for a smoke ... be ever so nice to just sit at a table, eat, talk, sip smooth whiskey, and smoke. Thanks to anyone who has any suggestions!
