I have a group of 7 or 8 for dinner on a week night. There is no budget for this meal, but would like to keep it on the more casual side (probably not Charleston). We have a pretty good group of eaters and almost any cuisine is in play. As far as location goes, we would like to keep it within the city limits favoring Fed Hill, Harbor East, Fells, Hamden, Mt. Vernon...you get the picture.
Some thoughts I had were Cinghiale, Bicycle, and Woodberry Kitchen. Are there any I'm missing? Or places that might work better for a bigger group? Or places I should avoid?
