restaurant for this THURSDAY- want to impress my midtown friends

lkhabiri | Jun 21, 2011 07:45 PM

Hi this is my first time posting so pls excuse any errors

I would like a recommendation for a restaurant for THIS thurs evening at around 6pm- I am hoping the day of week and time mean that I dont need to reserve too far in advance (or dont need reservations at all!)

it will be 4 people (me +3). my 3 companions work in manhattan but RARELY go below midtown. I took one to momofuku ssam and she loved it. I was hoping for a similar sort of recommendation

crowd likes asian fusion- but this is not obligatory. I was mainly hoping for the refined hipness factor. they say they want to see downtown, but the one time I took them to a "gritty" place I frequent in alphabet city they didnt like it

so basically I want to show them something interesting, hip, with good food and a downtown ambiance- whatever the hell that means, but it has to be palatable for someone who doesnt live here.

the price point is negotiable- I was hoping for 250 or less before tax/tip/drinks. or momfuku ssam prices

thanks for your help
