Recomendations for Late Celebratory Group Lunch on a Friday

Thank you for all these suggestions. We don't want anything super casual or super fancy. Somewhere that is nice and pretty or as some element of fun would be good. If we can keep it around $50 per person with drinks or below that would be great.

Recomendations for Late Celebratory Group Lunch on a Friday

Hi. I am looking for a celebratory place to have a lunch for 15-20 people around 3 or 3:30 pm. I realize a lot of places are closed to transition between lunch and dinner this time, so I would love some ideas of places that would be open. I would prefer to keep it midtown or below, closest to village is the best. Also, the lunch will be in May so if the weather cooperates, I would like a place that has outdoor options or at least lets in a lot of natural light.

Late Lunch for 15-20 on Friday - Hoping for outdoor seating or at least open and bright feel

Hello. I plan to get married at city hall on a Friday in May. Afterwards, I would like to have lunch with a group of 15-20 friends/family. The family is less adventurous with food (although they are comfortable with latin food) and won't like anywhere too fancy. I would love to find a pretty restaurant with good food that has either outdoor seating or at least an open and bright environment. We don't need to stick around city hall. We could take taxis or cars to the restaurant. Thanks!

Nuela or Rayuela

Hi. I managed to secure reservations for these two restaurants tomorrow., but need to let go of one. Nuela seems a little pricier. Is it worth it? How does it compare to Rayuela? Ambience goes a long way, but our priority is eating well without overpaying for what we are getting. Thanks.

Recs for Small Bachelorette Dinner

Four of us are taking a foodie bachelorette out for a nice dinner. The bachelorette enjoys quality food as well as fun, hip atmosphere (but nothing too too crazy). Any recommendations? So far, I have looked at Perry Street, A Voce Madison, and Sho Shaun, but I have never eaten in those places so I don't know about the atmosphere (plus I've read mixed reviews on A Voce food). I would appreciate all suggestions. Also, any ideas for a swanky rooftop bar for a pre-dinner drink and perhaps appetizer? Thanks.

Best Steak Dinner for Boyfriend's 30th Bday?

Hi. I'd like to take my boyfriend somewhere fun and romantic for his birthday with a steak he won't forget. My budget is about $150 for everything. I'd prefer somewhere downtown, but I am open to anywhere in Manhattan.

Would you recommend Novo?

Would you recommend Novo for a birthday dinner of 8-12 people? Also, is there dancing after dinner? What type of music. I'm looking for a mix of Latin and hip hop, or one or the other.

Romantic Birthday Dinner for Boyfriend Who Loves Meat

Hi. I am looking for a romantic, but not stuffy, place to take my boyfriend for his birthday, preferably in the West Village (but Chelsea or Union Square would work also.) He loves all things meat, steak,sausage and pork. I considered churrasceria plataforma, but I think a more intimate place would be better. I am currently considering Alfama or AOC Bedford, but I have not been to either. Any thoughts?
