park slope-ish dinner good for a group of 8?

  • 6

hi folks, can anyone help me think of a restaurant in the park slope area (could also be in a close-by neighborhood like prospect heights, south slope/windsor terrace) that would be good for a group of 8 to actually be able to have conversations? things i'm looking for would be a relatively quiet environment so we can hear each other and preferably tables that are either round or would accommodate a person at the head and foot of the table. maybe in the $15-20 entree range - don't want to go much above that because some folks in the group are on tight budgets. ideas?
thanks!

  1. Tough one. La Villa on 5th Ave. might work. And sharing pizzas would certainly be reasonable.

    1. Downtown Atlantic has a nice round table that could accommodate your group, and fits your price point.

      1. we did 8 at Thistle Hill on a friday night. They were able to seat us without a problem and the food was great.

        1. I know what you mean about the noise problem. Osteria Convivium (in the wine cellar) is relatively quiet - it might be a little higher than some others however. I agree that La villa might work and their pizza is pretty good.
          Do you care whether the restaurant is stylish or not? there are certainly a range of lower budget places from El Viejo Yayo to Milan on 5th Ave across from Greenwood that would work in terms of a less intense atmosphere.

          1. Korzo would work. The noise level is relatively low and the prices are gentle. The food is very good.
