I am planning on taking a good friend to see "Traces" in Union Sq on Saturday for his birthday and then to dinner. We both love good food and I currently have 10:30 reservations at Blue Hill, but was thinking that the atmosphere might be a let down after seeing such a high-energy show.
Any ideas for great food and wine, but a more lively atmosphere? Prefer below Union Square or right near it, similar price point to Blue Hill or below.
Thanks in advance!
