I'll be taking my parents out for dinner tomorrow, and I'm looking for a place in the Lower East Side or East Village. It's going to be cold, rainy, and generally miserable, so a place where we can really relax at the end of the day with some hearty food and a good glass of wine would be ideal. My parents will eat anything, but they probably won't be up for a snobby place or prices above $30.
Thanks for your suggestions or links to other posts!
