Fun, Hip, Relatively Cheap B-day Dinner for 10 mid 20s DOWNTOWN
Would love any suggestions you guys have.
Here is the criteria:
Relatively Cheap - including booze could be 40ish per person
Downtown on the east side - LES or EV, etc.
Good for groups (its gonna be mostly girls)
I always have fun with a group at Xunta on first ave. A few pitures of sangria and a bunch of yummy tapas (the bacon wrapped figs and spicy potatoes brava) and you will easily be underbudget. Just get there early to avoid the crowds.
I'm a big fan of Grape and Grain...but it's wine and beer only. Great food to share. I was at Bonjoo one night (korean) and there was a large party there having a great time (again wine, sake, beer). Frank, Lil Frankies, or Max (Italian). Agozar (tapas), Oliva (tapas), Apple (just check it out...it's asian influenced), Rice (beer, wine,sake) The Elephant (Thai), Zum Schneider (German)
