lively double date help?

A friend of my bf wants to go on a double date on thursday. He suggested Xunta since tapas are always fun and they have live flamenco on thursday evenings. Thing is, weve been to Xunta. Repeatedly. He tends to go back to a place time and time again and frankly, i wanna try something different!

Im looking for a place that will be fun for a double date, with creative fun food /atmosphere and a medium price point ( maybe 30$ pp before drinks? flexible here). Neighborhood doesnt matter and of course wed need to be able to get a res. for 4 in two days- i was thinking casa mono, but thats never gonna happen....maybe Euzkadi? Barrio Chino? Public? doesnt have to be tapas....any suggestions?

  1. You should try calling Casa Mono. We once got same-day prime-time 7P reservations.

      Casa Mono is a great idea or maybe Alta for the whole Tapas thing-
