I'm looking for a fun, trendy NYC restaurant with good food and great energy to help my friend celebrate her upcoming wedding next Sat. There will be 7 of us gals all in our early to mid 30s. Would love something with an Asian or Latin flare but am open to any place that would have unique food and good atmosphere. Preferably meatpacking district or any place that would be good for going out afterwards. Also, would like recommendations for lounges we should check out. Not really into the club scene though.
Regarding Asian style restaurants, I've been to Spice Market, Buddakan, Kittichai, and Nobu. Granted my friends haven't been so I would be willing to go back to those places if one of them is the best choice. I was recommended Buddha Bar and watned to get thoughts on that also.
Thanks so much!
