Few of my mom-circle friends have been talking about getting together and going out to a lounge in NY and pretending for a night, to be single with no kids. Of course I was totally in! I also convinced my coworker Todd to come out with us (the rule being that with my friends, he be charming smooth talker and enteretain the ladies!) His initial reaction was "What am I? An escort??" ... and my answer being "Oh yes, that's exactly what you are!!" - he thankfully still agreed, and I must say he did pretty well!
As per usual with this group, we had to find a deal for our event! We ending up finding a great deal on Gilt City for drinks and apps at the Toro Lounge which is located downstairs from the Plein Sud restaurant at the Smyth Tribeca Hotel. Unfortunately, when we got there, we were told that there was a private event in the Toro Lounge. They offered to honor the certificate at the Plein Sud restaurant, which turned our intended lounge experience to a nice dinner. (That just means we'll have to go out again - Yay!)

The Food @ Plein Sud
The food was delicious my first time at Plein Sud for lunch when it first opened. However, this time, the food was just not as good as I remembered it to be, it was a slight disappointment, but the company made up for the slight disappointmet. 3 1/2 stars from me.
This rice ball dish was our favorite of the night!
