Happy New Year Chowhounders! I'm looking for ideas for a fun, casual place with descent food to go downtown for dinner and drinks to ring in the new year. It doesn't necessarily have to be where we will end up at midnight. We (my wife and I) will be starting in Downtown crossing around 5ish, walking around for a while and then meeting up with another couple for dinner/drinks. Many of the places I would normally think to go are having ticketed events and others seem like they will be packed and probably inaccessible due to their size and their usual demand on non holiday evenings. We love places like JM Curley, the bar at Bistro Du Midi and Petit Robert, Myers and Chang. Was thinking possibly of Chinatown area, but don't have too much knowledge of good places there. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
