I'm attending a play on Barrow Street in the Village tomorrow night and have reservations for dinner at Lupa at 5:00. That said, I must admit to being more than a little edgy about keeping my reservation with so much mixed (mostly negative) opinions posted recently about Lupa.
Does anyone have any other recs for great food at a fair price in the area? I'm not afraid to spend a fair amount if the food merits it; of course getting a table at this late date is likely no easy task, although it is a Thursday night, not a weekend, so maybe I'd luck out.
All suggestions are appreciated, as well as reasons why we should eat at Lupa and recs re: what to eat there.
