I've been charged with planning a "civilized" bachelorette day for a girlfriend who lives in Manhattan - we'll be doing a spa day bookended by brunch and dinner.
Can someone recommend restaurants that would be good for a group of 5-7 young women for
1) Saturday Brunch - looking to spend $15-$20 per person, standard brunch menu, in Manhattan, subway accessible
2) Saturday dinner - Can we get a "nice" /white-tablecloth setting while looking to spend $50-$60 pp (w/ light wine drinking)? The group is open to any cuisine, and looking for a celebratory atmosphere w/ solid if not top-notch food. We'll be in the Columbus Cirle area, but can be neighborhood-flexible...
Thanks very much!
