Thanks everyone! I will look into these suggestions.
My 21st birthday is on December 30th. I am home in Austin for the holidays, but I fly back to NYC on my birthday. My ideal plan is to have a midnight dinner with 2 of my friends (both 21) on the 29th, (or I guess the wee hours of the 30th).
I'm aware of Magnolia's and Kerbey lane.. but I wanted something a bit more upscale, if possible. No need for mixed drinks or anything. What I would really like is some delicious food, of any cuisine (none of us is picky), and a nice bottle of wine. I'm not looking to get "wasted."
Can anyone suggest a restaurant, or, I guess, bar with good food.. that will be open late night (doesn't have to be 24 hrs) on monday?
