My boss just announced she will be in NYC Tuesday night and asked if we will be around for dinner (we all work remotely). Boss is single female from Arkansas, 40's, sweet librarian type who is not too adventurous but likes to feel like she is one of the gang. I am in charge of setting up the dinner (other colleagues also female, so it would be a girls' night out). I was thinking somewhere with a fun scene (but not too hipster to make her feel out of place). Having moved outside the city, I have no idea what would fit the bill now-- I was thinking along the lines of Pastis, Baltazar or Spotted Pig, nothing too ethnic, I think she has pretty vanilla eating habits. I want her to have a great time above all, lots of people watching and wine, and to make her enjoy nyc. We are probably going to be eating early-- 6 or 6:30 on a Tue night-- so definitely somewhere lively at that time-- but not where we have to wait an hour for a table. Help?
