I'm taking my husband and another couple out to dinner on Friday and it's been a long time for us, so bear with me. I am looking for good restaurant recs, preferably on the UWS as our friends are coming from Riverdale. We're not picky about cuisine, as long as it's good food. I'd love a place with great drinks and decent lighting (I'm not getting any younger, and since we rarely make it out for a grownup night, I'd like the lighting to be kind to me.) It doesn't have to be new and sceney (in fact, I'd be happy for it not to be sceney), but I figure a lot has changed on the UWS since we moved to Brooklyn 5 years ago, so I'd love some suggestions from people in the know. I used to love Ouest and we also liked Pampas, to give you an idea of the places we went when we lived there. Thanks in advance!
