Leisurely cheap bday dinner below 14th

Anybody know of a good place to bring 8-10 people for a birthday dinner on Saturday night where we won't be rushed?

I'm picturing somewhere cheap and relatively quiet where we can sit and yammer as if we were at brunch. Hoping Lower East Side, Chinatown, East Village, but anywhere in that general area south of 14th would work.

It could be a ramen joint, cheap & authentic Chinese, Mexican --anything, really, as long as we can have a relaxed good time and a few drinks.

Thanks all!

  1. Are you looking for a reservation for 8-10 people for THIS saturday night, or A saturday night?

    Supper for italian maybe?

    I think youre going to have a problem with your group size and leisure request, at your price point. less expensive places have to make up for lower profit margins by packing more people in and turning tables over faster than fancy tasting menu places with multiple michelin stars - its not an accidental relationship between table spacing and entree price.

      Good point. It's for this Sat. Maybe a place that has drinks so we could make up for the cheap food by sitting and drinking?

    2. You could try kuma inn- its byo which will make the meal way cheaper.
