Where should I take my three friends and myself to for an inexpensive dinner (about $13 and under, per person) with a decent atmosphere? Location doesn't really matter but I do prefer to stay within the Villages, Chelsea, or up to Midtown. Cuisine restrictions is no sushi (one of my friends are not too thrilled with the idea of eating raw fish, unfortunately); basically you're free to suggest anything from there.
The only place that I can think up of right now is Momofuku Ssam, Kampuchea Noodle Bar, Great Jones Cafe, Minca, and Veselka.
Thanks in advance.
