While in NYC we met up with some friends to catch up. As is requisite for New York nights out, the night began at Rosa Mexicana with a few rounds of margaritas and their delicious guac. And as is also requisite for NY nights out, a few people dropped off and we ended up with a core group throwing around various places to go for dinner. There were 6 of us with no reservation. The Spotted Pig was discussed as were other locations that would have required a long wait and we finally settled on The Highlands, a new gastropub on a quaint West Village Street. The meal of nouveau Scottish food was delicious and the restaurant was easily able to seat us.
