So my group of 8-10 people are looking for a place to eat this Friday night (the 26th). We will be staying at 88th and Amsterdam, but a little bit (or a lot) of travel is not a issue.
Biggest hangup: varied tastes. We have a couple very adventurous omnivores, some adventurous vegetarians, some non-adventurous omnivores, yada yada yada. We need a place that can satisfy everybody. Flavor is a bigger emphasis than creativity, but creativity is nice, too. In addition, one of us is going to Southeast Asia the next day, so New American is preferred, and Indian/Thai/Vietnamese etc. is not.
(Of what I've found, Recipe seems to have a great menu for us...but we would take up half the restaurant)
Budget: entrees $20-$30. A little less atmosphere with a little lower price is totally OK, not much leeway on the higher end, though.
Thanks for all your help!
