Hi! I just moved to New York City and don't really know my way around yet! Some of my friends are coming in for New Year's Eve. We want to find a bar/pub where we can get great food for dinner and affordable drinks all night. We don't want a party scene, just an easy, festive bar scene with some good food. Something like the Blind Tiger NYE event sounds ideal (one location, good beer, buffet, once price, in the LES.) Does anyone have any other recommendations?
We live in the UES but can go wherever as long as it's subway-accessible! Preference would be LES/Alphabet City/West Village, but that's not required. We'd like to stay in Manhattan just to make getting home easier.
