$25 pp?

Hey everyone,
Another couple invited my bf and I for dinner on monday. They said that I could pick the restaurant but that we stick to approx 25-30 per person NOT including drinks.
So where would you suggest? I'm having a hard time.. everyone on my current "to go" list is significantly more than that.
In terms of cuisine.. we need to stick to italian, continental, the basics.. no asian, sushi, indian, etc.
No pub, we want a nice atmosphere and a good meal.
And the only other specific requirement is that its open on a monday night.
Thanks in advance.

  1. Do you think you could eat at Weezie's for that? I'm thinking it's a possibility.

    2. Le Select might work for you.

        I think most entrees at Le Select are around $25.

        How about Il Fornello - many locations.

        Jules - price is right, but their prix fixe is really boring - steak frites or grilled salmon.

          Le Select's steak frites prix fixe is $19.95 iirc.

          1. re: Herb

            Le Select is definitely over that budget. The OP won't be able to order anything other than a vegetarian main (or steak frites prix fixe) for that price.

            With careful ordering, you could do Enoteca Sociale (app + pasta) for $25pp, or Mercatto (again sticking to app + pasta or pizza). I particularly like the College St. location of Mercatto. Its insanely busy at lunch, but very lovely in the evening, especially with the glass windows and candlelight. Both open on a Monday.

            You could also do Le Paradis easily for that price. And that would include a full meal (app+main+dessert).

            Sidecar is also a good suggestion.

        1. re: childofthestorm

          In a similar vein, Negroni. You can get apps, mains, and dessert for $25pp.

          1. re: childofthestorm

            Ditto Sidecar and Negroni. Sidecar has a $25 prix fixe Sunday - Wednesday. And Negroni is cheap-ish and cheerful and very tasty.

          2. Including tax and tips ?? McDonald's.. I would suggest the Keg ..seems to fit except the Italian part.
            But don't expect an app and dessert..well maybe one. You can split them ya know..Keg has big servings!

            Enjoy
