10 people, $20/pp, any ideas?

The subject pretty much sums it up: going out with 10 friends, looking to spend about $20/pp (not including drinks) as some people don't have more to spend than that. Centrally located as some live in Queens, Brooklyn, UES, UWS but then again, centrally located may mean Times Square = tourist trap and too $$$. So location is secondary to cost and being able to accommodate a large party.

Cuisines - Asian, Italian, American are preferred. Any help would be great as most of the places I've thought of are too expensive!

    1. Whole pork butt at Daisy May's! I think they now have a liquor license so they have beer and wine too. You can also try a half-pig but that would take you a little bit over-budget. You need to call ahead for either option. Both the whole pork butt and half pig are for 6 people but I can't imagine six finishing it all. If you get the pork butt, you will still have room in your budget to get a few ribs or plate specials or sides.

      Hopefully there are no vegetarians or vegans in your group or Daisy May's will be a poor suggestion...

          koreatown is fairly expensive. i can't think of anywhere that $20/person would go too far.
