Seeking: Best $50 or less--Park Slope and vicinity

Seeking a restaurant in Park Slope or vicinity for a special occasion.
Requirements: open Mondays, liquor license (preferably with good cocktail list), $50 or less per person, fish and vegetarian-diner friendly.

Al di La tops our list, but may be ready for something completely different or new.
I know many of you are enthusiastic about Talde, but we're unwilling to wait 1-1/2 hours to get a table and he's pretty meat-centric.
Applewood is closed on Mondays.

Bring it on, hounds...

  1. Perhaps Convivium Osteria or Stone Park Cafe? And Blue Ribbon has combined with Blue Ribbon Sushi so lots of fish options there.

      + Blue Ribbon, but with the caveat that you will have to order carefully to stay within a $50 pp limit.

      Blue Ribbon Sushi moved into Blue Ribbon at the beginning of March after losing their lease next door, so the menu has changed and there may be some service glitches. If you Google BR you can see their menu and get an idea of the variety of foods they offer and the prices.

      Good luck in any event...

        I love Blue Ribbon, but if price is a concern at all it's the last restaurant in the neighborhood to come to mind. Creative ordering is never fun. Isn't the point to splurge a little anyway?

        Get a dozen oysters, the fried chicken and a bottle of wine at that $50 pp is out the window.

    2. I haven't been yet (the pains of being hitched to a shellfish allergic partner) but maybe littleneck?

      1. Don't know if they're open on Mondays but have you thought about Locanda Vini et Olii?

        1. How about 12th St Bar and Grill? I haven't been, but am considering it for a special occasion coming up soon. Love the menu, and the reviews are consistently strong.
