Fun Dinner for 2 Ladies

Elyssa | Aug 14, 2008 06:30 AM

Hi NY Hounds,

I'm going to be coming to NYC towards the end of September for my best friend's final wedding dress fitting. Since I am the maid of honor, I would like to take her out to a fun dinner, just the 2 of us. I'm a major foodie---her, not so much. She won't enjoy anything too out there and doesn't like tapas (but does like small plates). And she really enjoys a fun cocktail list or wine.

Right now I'm leaning towards Stanton Social. I went there once before when in NYC and really enjoyed my meal there. I know some folks aren't that into it, but this is the type of vibe I'm looking for. Good drinks, good food, in a fun/chic atmosphere. We live in DC, so I'm looking for something a little more NYC. Also, I'm on a bit of a budget. I would prefer not to go over $125 for both of us.

I made a list of other places to consider. Your input would be great (and other recommendations are welcome):

Spice Market
Sushi Samba
Centro Vinoteca

In terms of location, we will be staying around Union Square/Flatiron District. But I don't mind traveling to another fun area.
