Warm Dinner on a Nasty Day in LES/East Village

sufunsified Oct 24, 2008 02:23 PM

Hey guys,
I'll be taking my parents out for dinner tomorrow, and I'm looking for a place in the Lower East Side or East Village. It's going to be cold, rainy, and generally miserable, so a place where we can really relax at the end of the day with some hearty food and a good glass of wine would be ideal. My parents will eat anything, but they probably won't be up for a snobby place or prices above $30.
Thanks for your suggestions or links to other posts!

    I'm gonna go lower end than the other posters and suggest Itzocan. It's a tiny hole in the wall, and the wine isn't that great, but their food is homey and hearty. I am a huge fan of their huitlacoche souffle, an earthy and ethereal delicious appetizer, and their tamalitos in saffron broth is the perfect warm your insides food for a cold, rainy and generally miserable day.

      Hearth - I think you can just slide in with your price range.
