Brunch date options

If the weather is right, Gascogne has an amazing outdoor patio, perfect for brunch.

Braeburn v. 10 Downing

Trying to decide between the two for a friday night date for 2. Curious on thoughts about quality of food and atmosphere. I've heard 10 Downing can be rather loud.
Much obliged

Il Bagatto - Avoid

I normally only use this great site to boast about restaurants but my experience last night at Il Bagatto warrants deviating from this. We had a 9:15 reservation for a table of 5. I get it, it's New York on a Saturday night, so waiting 30 minutes for a table is somewhat expected. But we did not sit until 11pm AND when someone from my group asked the host/owner at 10 as to when we would be seated, he yelled at her and told her he will seat us when he wants to. This was repeated again at 10:30 when he again yelled at another member of our party when we had the audacity to learn when we would be seated. Then, when we finally got our table, the owner came over with a half order of bruschetta to apologize for the delay. That was beyond insulting. Then, when it was dessert time, we were all excited to try the triple mouse cake we had seen people eat while we waited for almost 2 hours. But of course by this point they had run out of that cake. Finally, our dining experience was over. As we all stood up to put on your jackets, the waitress offered us complimentary dessert drinks. Really?! We had to wait 2 hours for our table, you ran out of dessert and you offer us after diner drinks while we have out coats on in an effort to make things better. Again, totally insulting. While the food is above average, it is certainly not worthy this hassle. The owner needs to learn how to better manage his restaurant. Until he learns how to book his tables, I suggest avoiding this place.

Sat night West Village--No reservation---Any recs?

I ate at August a few months ago and was extremely disappointed. Perhaps I did not order well, but the food was nothing special. The lamb was particularly bland. The staff however is better than most. If you go, ask to sit in the back.
Dell'Anima is another option. You may have to wait a bit at the bar, but the food is delicious.

Pylos it is. Thank you everyone! Now that the food is taken care of, the rest is up to me.

I remember the review saying the fish are out on display (BLT Fish style) and that the salted fish is the way to go.

Private room for birthday party

Aroma has a nice private room downstairs. I have had two private parties there. I believe the room holds 20-30 people.

Affordable restaurant that could comfortably accomodate a party of 130-140?

If you like BBQ, I attended an excellent rehearsal dinner at Hill Country (26 & 6). It certainly is not fancy, but it is a fun atmosphere with some of the best bbq in the city, and I believe under your price point. The downstairs might be able to accommodate your group.

Thanks for all of the suggestions. I recently read about an excellent Mediterranean seafood restaurant in the E Village, I think. Any ideas? Thanks again everyone.

Hounds
Looking for a good mediterranean date spot. I am considering Ilili, but I much prefer the smaller, more intimate restaurants (i.e., Graffiti, Tre). I also want to keep the restaurant downtown: W or E Village or LES.
Much obliged
