    I wrote about Brooklyn Steak Company on Avenue M between E. 13th and 14th, a couple of months ago, We've been back a couple of times and the food has always been delicious.

      Here are some suggestions:

      El Gaucho, near F train (18th Ave).

      Pita Off the Corner, near F train (Ave P)

      Glatt a la Carte, a bit of a walk from the F train (18th Ave), or you can wait for the #8 bus if you don't feel like walking

      Sunflower (B/Q train, Kings Hwy)

      By the way, I know you said you were going out mid-week, so this is not applicable to you, but El Gaucho has a Monday special, a 3-course meal for $26.

        I'm fond of El Gaucho Glatt also.

          I'll add my vote to Orchidea and El Gaucho.

            We ate in El Gaucho for the first time about 2 weeks back. It was O K but expected much better.

              I agree about El Gaucho. Maybe I was expecting too much from all the hype, but it was just OK.

              I think Brooklyn Steak Company is much better.

            Pardes isn't convenient, I get it, but it's the best. If they haven't had the experience, I suggest swaying them to try!

              It is extremely convenient to Manhattan by subway. And there is parking. And Pardes is certainly the best for people who appreciate really great food. But it depends who is in the group. Stodgier people may feel more comfortable in a setting where everything on the menu is familiar.

              I highly recommend Brooklyn Steak Company. The ambiance and decor are nothing special at all, but the food is top-notch, the service is friendly and attentive (if not as professional as it should be), and it is quiet enough for a group. The food is priced reasonably compared to other high-end or steakhouse type places, and executed very well. It's on Avenue M, which is right where you are looking to go.
