Friday night, unfortunately, several weeks down the road. Can spend some $ but ideally less than an Il Mulino. Also would be nice if everyone could order from the menu, as opposed to prix fixe like (for example) Lupa would require. Prefer somewhere downtown (up to Gramercy/Flatiron) but not set on that.
Any suggestions? I'm not coming up w/ any great answers and would be very much obliged for any help.
