Casual West Village birthday

I want to plan a birthday celebration for 11 people on Sunday evening early. Since we're all west-siders I'm thinking West Village. I'd like to stay around $50 per person. If we go east, I was thinking about 'Inoteca. Anybody have any suggestions for something comparable on the west side, preferably downtown?

  1. That big table downstairs at Blue Ribbon Bakery

    1. This Sunday? During the hurricane?

      BRB is a good choice.

      Also, 'inoteca has a sister restaurant on the West side of town -- corsino:

      98 Rivington St, New York, NY 10002

      637 Hudson St, New York, NY 10014

      1. Second the Blue Ribbon rec.

        Buvette has a room in the back with a larger table that could accommodate your party. The food is very good, and it could be fun if your group enjoys sharing smaller plates.

          Thanks for these. I'll check them all out. Also, I've heard Gusto has a table in the wine cellar that might work. Anyone know about that?
