I'm looking for a fun place for approx 6 people to have dinner Sat night and celebrate a birthday. Would like to hear advice from this board on where we can get excellent food (preferably below 40th Street as we all live downtown) and also enjoy an attractive & lively atmosphere. Pricey is OK, food can be any type except Mexican and Indian. I was thinking about Asia De Cuba - we've celebrated a few B-days there and always had fun, but would like to turn the food up a notch - (would also consider more casual environment)
Lastly, I'm concerned about getting a reservation for 6 people on a Sat night at the last minute..
Any thoughts or advice would be really appreciated..
