A question from an out-of-towner:
A good college friend of mine is getting married in Manhattan, and I am hosting a small dinner the night before for her and a few of her close friends (5 of us). We're all closer to 40 than 30, and we haven't seen in each other in awhile, so I'd like a place that feels intimate and where we can have a nice conversation (no yelling across the table please). But I also don't want something too stuffy/fancy/old-fashioned (no snooty waters), as my friend is not overly formal herself and it is supposed to feel somewhat festive. And of course I would like the food to be good.
We're looking for something on the UWS, between the 50s and 80s. Based on my research on these boards I have narrowed it down to:
Per Se (I know - much more expensive, but am at least considering it)
Which one should I choose?? Very thankful for any advice.
