I have already selected Brasserie 8 1/2 but was wondering if there were any suggestions out there for an equally trendy restaurant with better food. B was all I could think of to fit the criteria.
Note: Party of 4 includes a boyfriend and his girlfriend, boyfriend's sister and mother. Somewhere we could talk freely and have a good time, while showing mom something "New York" -- bold decor with lively but classy environment, good food, solid drinks, and price range $20-30's per entree. Thanks in advance!
