Good Restaurant in Manhattan for group

Aspen1120 Apr 25, 2012 10:28 AM

Having a girls weekend with 5 of my college roommates. Looking for a good, fun restaurant for dinner, followed by drinks at nearby bars. Thinking east village, LES. Any recommendations? Specifically looking for American or Italian food.

    The Smith in the EV is easy, fairly inexpensive, and will suit your purpose. 'inoteca on the LES is another option, as is Schillers. Check out Beauty & Essex too (free champagne in the bathrooms).

      Or you could go across 3rd Av to Apiary instead.

          I've only been to Stanton Social for their brunch tasting menu which was a complete and total scam (tiny portions so you have to order two breakfasts). Would sooner go to Freemans if you're in LES.
