I desperately need help! 8 of us getting together for dinner friday night. my friend from westchester who is organizing it wants to go to Tony's DiNapoli on the Upper East Side -- AGAIN!!!! (everytime we get together this is where we go at his insistence). in my mind this place is average at best, and always too crowded.
anyway, i want to try to find another place on the upper east side that is a better option. italian preferred but not mandatory. same price range as tony's or perhaps a little more (up to $50 pp???). i'm a downtown guy so i don't know the upper east side that well.
please, please, please help me find somewhere. thanks!!!!!
