Something like Freemans?

I am looking for a restaurant for dinner in the Lower East Side that is hip, has good cocktails, and entrees $20 and under.

I really like the scene at Freemans and to a lesser extent La Esquina and would like to find some place similar. I have been out of the city for most of the year and I feel a bit disconnected from the restaurant scene. Are there any new restaurants you recommend that fit my criteria?

I recently read a review in The New Yorker about Browns Cafe, but couldn't find too much information on Chowhound about it. Thoughts?
