A good friend is coming to visit from California. As such, quite a few friends of ours will be getting together for some drinks, food & fun.
Primarily we're just concerned with finding someplace where we can all talk comfortably, and preferably whilst sipping on tastey cold alcholic bevies.
It would also be great if there was some delicious and not-too-expensive, yet interesting food available.
Looking to stay in Manhattan somewhere below 14th Street.
Any and all recos are most appreciated!
