New Haven area rec for a nosh and chat

Hi all,

I'm pulling together a get-together for between 5 and 8 women, mid-30s. Musts: not laden with college kids, nice wine/drink selection, good selection of small plates/apps, and able to hear each other without yelling. Decent seating where we can have a couple of tables to chat without feeling rushed, but not be crammed against a bar in a line of seats. Reasonably priced food/drinks (e.g. no need for $100 caviar).

Open: cuisine and location somewhere in New Haven county would be fine. Convenient parking would be nice but not a dealbreaker.

I thought of BAR, but that seems like it would be too yale-rific, plus the parking blows. Is there a tapas bar or anything like that which would be good for socializing in a small-large group? Maybe something on State St?

This is for mid-week so crowds shouldn't be an issue.

thanks in advance, guys!
