going to dinner tonight with a non-chowhound friend. so to make it fun for both of us, i thought we'd try one of the newer trendy spots on clinton street which hopefully happens to have good food! we will be going very early (6:30 or so), so i'm hoping to have time to wander the stretch, peruse menus and get in without a wait. but i'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions? i can't pay more than $15 for an entree, so there have to be a few choices on the menu for my budget.
however, if there's good feedback on chubo, i might be willing to stretch my budget. the menu posted on menupages.com looked intriguing. plus, it will be one-ingredient wednesday!
