my friend is looking for a place to have his birthday dinner. he's expecting about 10-15 people--all of which are artist-types in their 20s.
-a couple entree options under $10....BUT if that's not possible, then entrees in the $10-$15 range
-a place where you're not pressured to order an appetizer, drinks and/or dessert
-must be below 23rd street (East Village/LES preferred)
-must have vegetarian options
thanks for your help!
