HELP W/ OUT OF TOWN FRIENDS!!!

I have a group of friends coming in from LA for the weekend. We are a group of 6 looking for a great food, somewhat trendy, "sex in the city" type restaurant without being at a tourist trap like Tao. Any thoughts!!!!

ONE OF MY FAVORITE SPOTS IN THE CITY (ESPECIALLY LATE NIGHT) BUT HAVE BOYCOTTED SINCE THE BLACKOUT......REAL NEW YORKERS DONT PRICE GAUGE DURING A TIME OF NEED!!!!!!!

FOOD IS GREAT, BUT WITH PATSYS RIGHT THERE AS WELL, WHY GIVE PEOPLE BUSINESS THAT TAKE ADVANTAGE OF A SITUATION LIKE A CITY WIDE BLACK OUT!!!!

Dining Suggestions for 3-Year Old

Def would go to Landmarc in Tribeca.....not only is the food amazing (american steaks and interesting "advernturous options" and amazing italian pasta options) but it is super child friendly. They even will give you crayons and let you draw on the tables. Not just a rest. to bring kids too.....regualarly crowded with your normal downtown crowd. Check out the menu on menupages.com

Wakiya Review

Being a bunch of "foodies" we were excited to be able to score a Thursday night 915 reservation for 5 people for a friends 27th b-day.....some gift!!!!!

We were seated promptly.................................yup, thats about the last positive thing i have to say.

Highlights of the evening (please note the sarcasim):
- Fiery pepper hunt: For those that havent had the pleasure, this is supposed to be one of those interactive meals, where you endlessly search through what seams like hundreds of peppers which are not meant to be eaten to find your "treasure" of fried shrimp and chicken. Some treasure, more like a kick to the groin!!! After endless searching i found 3 pieces of chicken and 4 pieces of shrimp. I would have been happier to save the effort and just be given an order chicken nuggets from McDonalds off the dollar menu!!!!! Far more appetizing and without the hassle of seaching through peppers that can burn your mouth beyond repair! This is suppose to be dinner, not an episode from "Fear Factor". (although perhaps had i eaten a pepper by mistake i would saved myself the tourture that was the rest of my meal). Had to send back 3 dishes and would have sent back more if i didnt feel bad for the waiter.

- Service: Where shall we start.....average wait time for a drink - 15 minutes and 3 requests. Accuracy on drinks: 50%; And im not talking "kettle soda vs/ kettle tonic". Order a "vodka splash of anything" and your lucky to get a jack and coke 20 minutes later and only after asking for the 4th time!!!!

Finally; to top it off, the girl whos birthday it was celebrated in true fashion....wet t-shirt style!! No this wasnt due to the effects of the jack and coke that was suppose to be a kettle soda, rather this was due to the waitress spilling an entire tray of drinks on her white dress! Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!

After all of this, all anyone could think of was retreating from this disaster and move on with our evening. Easier said then done! It took 20 minutes and a manager to be able to get me my check................

Maybe if i would have gotten the chicken nuggets off the Mcdonalds dollar menu instead of the "fiery pepper $45 Hunt of hell" dish I would be able to pay for my friends dry cleaning bill!!!!!!!!!!
