I was hoping I could get some advice for a girls' night out this holiday season. About 5-8 of us would like to go to a nice place for dinner because we would like to dress up a bit (backpacks and faded jeans do get tiresome) but we are still all debt-ridden grad students so we'd prefer to keep mains under $30. Following that, we would plan to move to a bar/lounge.
Are there any places downtown or midtown that could fit that bill? Foodwise, we eat everything.
Thanks a lot!
