Lupa for a birthday dinner?

belma79 | Jan 7, 2013 12:09 PM

Hello everyone. A quick question for you. I'll be visiting NYC later this month with my husband and I'm thinking of going to Lupa for dinner on my birthday (it will be on a Tuesday). Would you say Lupa is a good birthday/celebratory spot? Note: we're splurging the Saturday before at Gramercy Tavern and also doing lunch at Per Se, so I'm looking for something that's vibrant and buzzy, without being too 'fancy'? (I'm also keen to try their Cacio & Pepe, a dish I usually love. I've also been to Babbo, and although I know they can't compare, am a fan of Mario Batali.) Any thoughts, especially on if we can do any 'better' would be much appreciated. Many thanks!
