Fun restaurants for 2 fortyish women tourists!

I will be coming to NY in a couple of days and staying at the 6 Columbus hotel right behind the Time Warner center. I have looked on the internet for restaurants to eat at and found a place called Tao which looks a bit exotic. I was wondering if we should go only for drinks or is it worth while staying for dinner?

If you have other suggestions.....we will be two 40 year old women looking to have nice dinners and drinks. We don't like too stuffy places either. Around the hotel, I had dinner at Bar Boulud, which I liked very much, and in the hotel at Blue ribbon but was looking for new places. I don't want places like Jean-Georges, a bit too expensive for my budget, but we both like to eat well. Just so you can see what are my tastes, I ate at Artisanal, Casa mono, Centro vinoteca, Campanile, Urena, Mercer kitchen just to name a few. If you have places in that vein....I will gladly accept suggestions for dinner and/or drinks.

My friend has never been to NY and wants to eat in Little Italy, because of the movies and television shows like The Sopranos, even if I told her that there aren't really good Italian restaurants on Mulberry. It will be my 15th trip to NY and I never ate there, but I want her to enjoy a trip so I thought that I could ask here if anyone knew of a good Italian restaurant on Mulberry. Frequent posters like RGR know that I like Campanile on 29th so if there is an equivalent restaurant on Mulberry, please let me know!

Thanks in advance for your answers!
