I would really appreciate your thoughts on where I could go with friends for a fun, reasonably priced (under $100 pp with alcohol) group dinner- the catch is that the place needs to be able to seat a party of 12 on a Friday or Saturday night. My friends all live downtown, so that would be our preferred locale.
We've had a pre-fixe dinner at Inoteca, but, I'm frankly a little sick of it. I would love to go somewhere that's not Italian but I'm open to any other kind of food. BYOB or pre-fixe would be nice, but are definitely not necessary. We've also eaten at Spitzer's as a group, which I would definitely recommend with a party of 10 or more.
