25th Birthday Dinner Restaurant

Gearing up to celebrate my 25th birthday and looking for some suggestions. Hoping for downtown tapas or mexican with great food and drinks. Looking to spend around $60pp with food and drinks. We're going to be 4-6 people, and want somewhere fun and not too pretentious, but still a "nice" place. I love cozy, sometimes hidden places-- exposed brick and dark. Someone suggested Barrio Chino, but they only take reservations for 8+. Any thoughts on The Ten Bells, Boqueria Soho or Rayuela? Very open to your suggestions!

  1. How about Kuma Inn? Korean-Filipino small plates. It's on the 2nd floor of a building and somewhat hidden. And it's BYOB last time I checked.

      1. Check out Taqueria Lower East Side. Some of the city's best margaritas + great Mexican food at very affordable prices.

        1. Have you look into either of the Empellon restaurants (Cocina or Taqueria)? Excellent food, nice atmosphere, very good service. Check it out.
