Help! Cheap, Hip Restaurant Needed for Group of 7 Downtown

LindayMalia Jun 29, 2007 01:19 PM

A group of friends from random cities in their early 30s are having an impromptu get together this weekend. Any good suggestions for a hip-ish place for 8 to eat in the LES/Downtown/Little Italy? My only criteria is that its gotta be on the cheaper side, have good atmosphere, and be able to accomodate us at 9:00PM. Any advice would be much appreciated...

    Cafe Noir in Soho. Get a bunch of plates to share.
    Freeman's is also really cool and a good value (not exactly cheap).

    I also wandered into this place not long ago and loved it.
