iso: mid-priced, not-too-loud, party of six

Hi all,

In search of a mid-priced, not-too-loud restaurant for a Saturday night, party of six, in early March. Location not a big factor (Manhattan/accessible Brooklyn is okay). For point of reference, Annisa's too expensive. Looking for ~$40/$50 a person, with a split bottle-or-two of wine included in that price. Any suggestions? Perhaps there are traditionally loud restaurants-- I'm thinking of ABC Kitchen here-- that have quieter back rooms? (I think that's the case at ABC Kitchen, but I may be misremembering.)

Many thanks!

Recommendation wanted: UWS, "not too edgy," not too expensive

Thanks! Telepan is a smidgen on the expensive side, but well-suited for this kind of meal.

Welcoming other thoughts as well!

Hello all,

Looking for a restaurant recommendation on the Upper West Side (or close-by) for 5-person family dinner (including an 89 year old!). Nothing "too edgy", preferably in the Italian/French/American genre. For a price point, Dovetail is a bit expensive.

Many thanks!

EMP: 4 course vs. 7 course dinner perks

hi all,

long-time-reader, first-time-poster.

i searched around for threads to piece the answer to this question together, but no dice by my count.

i'm looking to reserve a dinner for two at eleven madison park-- i've only been there for lunch and was wildly impressed-- and have a question regarding the four course verses the seven course menu. while $125 is a tad out of my price range, $195 is even more of a poor financial decision.

one of the highlights of EMP that 'made' lunch for me were the lots of extras-- plenty of amuses, candies, etc.

i'm wondering if there's a difference in these 'extras' between the four and seven course menus. do both get a quick tour of the kitchen if desired? and that cocktail? and candies?!? perhaps this makes me sound greedy. i'm not! just curious before i decide where my next fiscally unsound dinner is going to be.

many thanks in advance!
