We are a group of 6 good friends (3 couples) in our mid-30's around the country who don't get together often enough. We're looking for a good meal together -- festive/upbeat, even though we are not celebrating anything. Nothing loud or clubby like Megu, Buddakan or anywhere in the Meatpacking District. After all, we would like to be able to talk to each other without screaming across the tabe. Any recommendation?
