Hi all -
My best friend is having a 25th birthday party next Thurs and has asked me to help choose a restaurant and bar to celebrate. Here are the parameters:
Dinner: about 8 ppl...all around 25 yrs old..somewhere downtown (either side) with good drinks, good food, fun atmosphere. Want to keep entree prices below $20, but no tapas or japanese, please. I'm thinking something like Son Cubano, Pastis, or Inoteca... other ideas?
Bar: Looking for a bar nearby to dinner that's low-key and fun, with good music (like jukebox stuff, not house/trance)- not looking for a lounge or a wine bar - but a place with a decent crowd that 15 people could meet up at and have fun. I know it's vague... last bday we went to White Horse Tavern and it was perfect.
I feel like what i'm looking for would be in the E Vill/LES/Soho area but I'm in the West Village so I'm not totally familiar w/ the bars over there ...
Thanks for the help!
