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!!

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

    2. Tip is 20%

      1. 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.

        2. 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.
