    If you don't mind going way below 23rd st, there are 2 table for 6 next to each other at Aqua on Peck slip

      I did a ten person birthday dinner at Essex restaurant on essex and rivington. It went well, everyone was happy, affordable food in an interesting space.

          depends on what and how much you drink. i don't think it was over 40 per person.

          looks good. did you have a regular table or a private room? And did you do the prix fix menu? they look good.

            no prix fix. they will take reservations. they have two balcony sections that they will probably put you in, if not the big long table in the middle of the restaurant. gotta get the potato pancake dish. yum. service is good and quick, in general.
