My wife and I have an unexpected night out; its been awhile (too long) since we've been out in NYC. Historically, we have enjoyed some classic casual/great downtown establishments like Lupa, Le Gigot, Bar Pitti, etc.
I've been a bit out of the loop, but ideally looking for a place downtown that we may have a shot at walking into around 6:30 pm. Italian or French preferred....good wine list, comfortable service, etc...
Thanks in advance.
