Night out in the EV

We have 2 friends in town and want to take them out for drinks and dinner to a place they wouldn't see upstate. Any ideas for a place thats fun and/or trendy, has very good food, and reasonable prices (entrees under $20)? We prefer East Village/LES, but would consider elsewhere below 14th St. We have to be able to get a res or walk in around 7 tonight (Friday). No sushi. They've already been to Inoteca. We have a reservation at Stanton Social, but the one time we went, I wasn't very impressed; I felt like it was too much flash and overpriced for what it was. We were considering Mo Pitkins, Zerza, Kuma Inn, Kasadela (our go-to place), Perbacco, and Grand Sichuan, but open to al recs.

  1. Schillers on Rivington and Freeman's in Freeman's Alley are both pretty fun, and nice places to show people. Definitely fun, trendy and pretty good food, too.
