Warm Dinner on a Nasty Day in LES/East Village
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!
Chowhound is the best way to waste time at work EVER.
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.
