I am attempting to plan a little birthday dinner for my boyfriend in Brooklyn - around 8-12 people will most likely be attending. We live in Clinton Hill, and most of his friends live around us as well. We are most definitely not afraid to venture out, but would like to keep it somewhat close to the 'hood. We love all types of food. His friends are also criminally cheap, so I am forced to keep it at about $20-25 per person. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions and advice you may have!
