I'm going to be celebrating a big birthday and a friend who will have just moved to NYC from London at the end of January. I'd love to find a laid-back restaurant that can take reservations for 10-12 people, ideally with a round table rather than rectangle. One person is gluten free, but other than that, no food preferences. Because of the range of budgets in the group, the cheaper the better.
Through some digging, I've come up with:
- Fiore and Qi in Williamsburg
- Supper/Lil Frankie's and Lombardi's (the upstairs) in Manhattan.
Williamsburg would be preferable because we'll have a back area at a bar reserved for after (since I don't know of any bars off the top of my head in the East Village area that take reservations). Any suggestions and recommendations very welcome!
