good food, reasonable prices ($30-$40 pp). Any cuisine is ok including good burgers. TIA
Paninoteca on Smith and DeGraw. Excellent drinks, beautiful garden, very good food (panini, cured meats, cheese and some excellent entrees).
Though I've never been, Jolie on Atlantic apparently has a very nice garden and some interesting specials on different nights. !/2 price wine bottles on Tuesday and $1 oysters on Wednesday.
Not sure if your range includes drink, tax or tip but I'll throw out Chestnut (Smith St) on Tues or Weds for their $25 prix fixe. 3 courses and you can order anything off the menu.
I'll second the rec for Panino'teca. And add Frankies 457 (I'm pretty sure they have a garden but it's been awhile since I've been) and Cafe LuluC on Smith.
For Thai - Joya on Court St or Song on 5th Ave in Park Slope. Same owners - the food is great, fun drinks and the prices are excellent. Both have nice gardens. They get packed on weekend nights. I don't think they have an entree more than $12 and most are in the $7-10 range.
