A Restaurant for a book club to meet at...

I'm hosting my book club in a couple weeks - it'll be 6-7 late 20's aged women. We like to meet over wine and appetizers. I'm looking for a place below 14th street and not too expensive. Suggestions?

      What about Think Coffee on Mercer Street.

        We just had out last book Club at Epistrophy on Mott (btwn Spring and Kenmore). It was perfect. 7 of us sat at a long picnic table and ordered a variety of brucetta, ham and cheese plates, and salads. Lots of wine as's a very quiet place where people come to read or have drink and linger, but it was the perfect Book Club spot.

          at nolita house, there's a large back booth that might suit you...

            IMO, Nolita House is too noisy for a book club.

    2. I like Cooper 35. Our book club has met there before (wine is $3 for house, $5 for pinot/some red and their mixed cocktails are $4. They also have a prix fixe dinner menu that's $16, not including tax & tip).. Think Coffee is a possible location for our November one. Cucina di Pesce is small, but they have nice banquettes and an inexpensive prix fixe menu.
