Hi,

so I need to figure out where to go for my 26th bday dinner. we will be a group of 6 and i know my friends will want to pay for my share so i want to keep it under 60 a person plus tip which is really 50 a person including me..

any suggestions??

my parents will donate the wine so its really about the food...

i was thinking tapas or small plates but nothing has really caught my attention. I wanted something on the livelier side since it is going to be on a thursday night

thanks so much!!

    "my parents will donate the wine so its really about the food.."

    Does that mean they're paying for it, or you need a BYOB or corkage fee in place?

        Does Stanton Social do BYOB? It seems like they make their sales in liquor so I would definitely check.

        If Kuma Inn is still doing BYOB than that would fit your needs.

          Kuma Inn is a great choice assuming everybody in the group is comfortable with their style of food.

          Be aware that you will probably need some place that is BYOB, or at least, with a moderate corkage fee (when my 'rents went to Per Se it was 90 bucks per bottle...)

          How about Pasita over on Greenwich Avenue (south american pizzas/small plates)? Nice and cozy place with a good location and pretty darn good chicken/avocado/crema pizzas. Or Las Ramblas over on 4th St for straight up Tapas (a little small). Pasita used to have a little buzz but has quieted down significantly and Las Ramblas never did (in my limited memory). Check them out and let me know what you think.

            Pasita is a great idea! So charming and warm. Venezuelan pizza place, great inexpensive wine list, mostly Argentine/Chilean even a few very good Uruguayan selections.
