My friend is having a birthday and we are going to the Donkey Show at 9 pm at 21st St and Tenth Avenue. We'd like to have dinner beforehand (group of 4-6 people) and want to spend less than $20 per entree. Cozy atmosphere and decent service is a must. B-day girl does not wish to have Asian or traditional Italian.
I was contemplating Medina, Tia Pol and Cuba Cafe. Would welcome recommendations from you all!
