low-key place for drinks/food for group 7PM Thursday
My husband and I are moving from New York :( and wanted to get together with friends at a low-key place where we can get drinks/snacks and hang out comfortably. Number of people could be anywhere from 10-30 depending on when people show up. Prefer something on not too far east or downtown (i.e. anything UWS, midtown to West Village fine). Outdoor venue would be a bonus. I was thinking something like Shake Shack but would that be too crowded? Any thoughts?
