Hey, Philly 'hound here. My girlfriend has recently relocated to NYC for work and is about to celebrate her 25th birthday. Her entire family lives in NYC and eat out often. I appeal to the board at the last minute, as her b-day is a month away tomorrow and I know lots of places start accepting reservations 1 month out
here are the specifics:
8 people, eating at prime time on a Friday night
not 4 star prices but doesnt need to be necessarily a bargain
would prefer quiet and intimate over loud and trendy
Manhattan is a must but let's put the whole island in play
I would've loved to give Babbo a shot but they only take 6 as a max. I'm really all over the map...was thinking about Po, Tasting Room, Little Owl (fat chance)...suggestions?
