Have a somewhat picky friend who requested "Spanish food" for dinner tonight. He's Puerto Rican and if we go to a P-Rican restaurant, it has to taste like someone's grandma was cooking. Location wise it must be in Manhattan and no more than $50pp including drinks and tip. Other Latin cuisines are acceptable, please help I've been racking my brain all day!

      El Pote on 2nd Av bet 38 and 39 has great authentic Spanish dishes.

        I've heard good things about the entire scene at Camaradas. They're the only place I've seen in NYC that serves jibaritos, so it might be worth a visit for that alone.
