I'm coming back to NYC for my first trip back since moving away last year, and I would love some suggestions for a place where several of my friends and I can meet up for a drink and small plates/appetizers. Since I've left the city, my mind is blanking on options. I'm open to pretty much any neighborhood, I'm just looking for a place where people can easily drop in and have a drink or two that can accomodate maybe 8 of us. Outdoor space is a plus. Thanks!
