Last minute village recs?

After several months, my wife and I are lucky to have free babysitting and a night when neither of us are working. Any suggestions in EV, Greenwich Village, or West Village for a restaurant? We are looking for:

Any cuisine - great food
Easy to talk
Nice decor/ambiance
Up to 150/without liquor
Smaller places are better
Easy to get into without a reservation

I used to cook at Al Di La and used to follow the restaurant scene. Kids and life have gotten in the way of that in the past few years - looking to have a great meal, a great night, and a great time.

Many thanks in advance!

Thanks, Kathryn.....We went to Five Points a little while ago and were quite underwhelmed but the other restaraunts you suggested look good. Does anyone else have any other suggestions?

Aaaah...Last minute anniversary suggestions in Manhattan

So, I've been lurking on this board for a while and have finally decided to register. Thanks for all of the insightful reviews and thoughts about the food that is available in this wonderful city.

I'm in a bind to find a place for dinner tomorrow night - it's not my real anniversary but is rather our first "date" anniversary (married three years this June). Any suggestions for a place?

We'd like a place like:

Al Di La
Grocery
Tabla
Mas
Public

Under 100USD for 1 appetizer, 2 mains, 1 dessert and no beverages. My wife and I enjoy all types of food but in particular we really like fresh, seasonal cooking that's centered around new American/eclectic with a bit of foreign flair thrown into it.

Also, please keep in mind that we don't have that much lead time to try to make a reservation. However, most places we would like to go to probably wouldn't be terribly crazy on a Thursday night.

Many thanks for any advice that you might be able to give!
