I had a lovely dinner this evening. My friend Allegra and I have been trying to meet up for dinner for awhile, and were stymied last week thanks to H1N1. At her suggestion we walked over towards the West Village, and found this lovely place. It’s a little pricy (ended up being about $45 each, including salad, pasta and 1 1/2 glasses of wine each), but the portions are the right size and the atmosphere is quite nice. The waiter staff doesn’t hover, so I really felt like I was dining and could relax and enjoy the evening.
Good conversation, semi-outdoor seating, sunny evening in NYC? Hard to top it.
