Manhattan fun dinner for adults

efreid | Jul 10, 2007 02:34 PM

I know this is going to sound sad but I have worked in NYC for over four years (I moved here from LA in 2003) but live in the burbs and do not go out that often in the city. So outside of my normal lunch/business lunch fare in the West Village, and the occasional Theatre district pre show dinner I am pretty clueless to the NY scene.

My wife is turning 31 and has an old college friend coming down to visit and I want a fun place for us to go out for dinner then drinks/dancing. Although there are a ton of places I would love to go to, she is just not into what she would call “Fancy” food so French or New American cuisine is out of the question as is Sushi as she does not like fish. So all the things I want to try are off the list, but hey this is her birthday not mine.

I am looking for a young (we are all in our early 30’s) hip place that is not too food adventurous where we can have fun, then a place to go after that has good drinks and atmosphere that we will not have to wait for hours just to get in. And maybe a late night stop for dessert.

Any advice!!!
