Suggestions for a 16 yr old and her friends in Manhattan - not a chain

sper007 | Jan 12, 2010 01:12 PM

I hoping someone will have a suggestion either for lunch or early dinner in midtown (preferred) or downtown for a group of 5 teens and 2 parents on a weekend. Taking our daughter and some friends to ice skate (either at Wollman or Rockefeller) and then onto a meal (order could be reversed).... It's my daughter's 16th b-day so she's looking for something a little different - no chains please. Something bohemian or artsy would be cool. Thanks fellow hounders for any ideas. I was thinking of Shopsins down at Essex for lunch but he is quirky and doesn't seat parties greater than 4. Serendipity 3 is a backup.
