girls trip... craftbar vs the modern bar room?... or esca?

Demeter | Nov 2, 201108:20 AM

Toronto chowhounder headed down to NYC for a girls weekend trip (with 2 less adventurous eaters). Having missed out in booking Babbo, I've got reservations for craftbar, the Modern Bar Room, and Esca. I know Esca is a the odd ball of the group but I have a temp reservation for it so might as well ask for your opinion on that also.

Now I'm the type who doesn't mind going all out for a meal but my friends are more casual and hoping to keep the budget under control. They're both sensitive to gluten/wheat and one doesn't eat pork or beef (blasphemy, I know). So what are your rec for a semi-casual saturday night dinner with great atmosphere and food?!

Thanks in advance ;)
