First time posting here..but I hope someone can help me out.
I'm getting together with some friends, all in our mid-20s for a girls night out of sorts. I want to find a restaurant where we can sit and have good food and great drinks. I don't need somewhere super trendy or hip, but we want to go out somewhere with a cool vibe and that's fun for a group of young, fun girls. They're visiting, so they really want to feel like they're in the city. Also, something that's within walking distance of the East Village/LES. We're meeting people later in the Tompkins Square area. I always see these great restaurants on 1st and A, but now I'm completely drawing a blank. No food type specifics, we just want to stay away from Indian or Thai. Any help? Anyone have any opinions on Mole on Allen Street?
Thanks in advance!
