Where to go after film at IFC

  • k

We'll be 10 people going to a film at the IFC in the West Village with dinner to follow. We want a place with good food, any type of cuisine, but nothing fancy or too expensive. Any suggestions?

  1. Is this for tonight?

    Also, people can interpret "not too expensive" very differently depending on the depth of their wallets. So, per person budget for food only (drinks, tax & tip additional)?

      This for Tuesday night. I'd say $25 per person w/o alcohol and tips would be okay.

    2. That's a pretty large party for the West Village, but I would try:

      900 Degrees
      Grand Sichuan's 7th Ave location
      Spunto

      Grand Sichuan
      15 7th Ave S, New York, NY 10014

      Spunto
      65 Carmine St, New York, NY 10014

      900 Degrees
      29 7th Ave S, New York, NY 10014

      1. Otto might also work.

        So many Village restaurants are itty-bitty—it can be hard to have a party of four at some places!

            Good suggestions, all! I'm leaning toward Otto or Grand Sichuan.

              For both, I'd call and make a reservation. Note that Otto can get really loud, too.

              I don't know if I'd walk into Keste with a party of 10, though. It's not a big restaurant.

                I've seen large parties there, They may even give you some pizza while you wait!

                1. re: Chuck Lawrence

                  I don't know if you can even fit a party of 10 in Keste. Sheesh.

                    I've been to Keste for a birthday dinner, party of ten. The place had only been open for a short time, but it was already pretty popular. The hostess pre-arranged it with the manager, and we had to arrive early, around 6:30. They didn't rush us, exactly, but the food came out (and plates were cleared) like lightning. So it is possible, but probably not in a situation like the OP's, during prime time.

                Love Bar Pitti but the few times I went, we felt rushed. It's also tough going with a group since it is cash only. Mermaid Oyster Bar has great food and a fun atmosphere.
