challenge- cheap take-in for party?

sara | Nov 11, 2004 10:44 AM

alright, here's the challenge. instead of doing the typical birthday dinner out, this year i was thinking of taking in from a restaurant so we can do it at home, and try to save some money in the process.
the problem is, i'm blanking on what type of food and where to get it from. we'll probably be about 10-15 people, and i don't want to spend more than $20 a head. oh, and i live in the east village.
my initial ideas:
a 6 foot sub
chickpea/middle eastern
dim sum/chinese?

does anyone have any suggestions-- a specific restaurant that does bulk take out, catering, etc. for cheap? or just an idea of what type of food i could focus on?
thanks in advance!
