Took a good client to Costata for dinner. Arrived on the early side for NYC (client preference), so it was fairly quiet and not too crowded for the first half of our meal. The scene definitely picked up by the time we departed, maybe 2.5 hours later. Excellent wine list, not grossly overpriced, and a wine steward who was happy to assist. Food was outstanding, including the steaks, but the starters and pasta dishes really stood out. Costata definitely earned a spot in the rotation when in SoHo.
