I'm coming to town with a group of graduate students and authors and need a place for all of us to eat Wednesday evening next week. There will be 17 of us. We'll be coming from an event at 61st St & 5th Ave. and we're willing to walk a few blocks, but not 20. We have some money but it's not a huge amount, I'd like to spend about 40-60 dollars a person (not counting drinks). We'll be having Italian the night before so no Italian, we can't do Chinese or Thai due to allergies within the group (shellfish, some fish). Does anyone have any suggestions? I have gone online but am now, officially, hopelessly confused.
Thanks so much,
