A group of about 8 people total will be going out to dinner this Friday for my 25th birthday. I orginally planned on making reservations at Tortilla Flats, because I've been there for a friend's birthday dinner before and had a great time...but unfortunately, since it's a Friday night, they require guests with reservations to sign up for some sort of package deal (for a min. of $50 a person).
I was hoping someone might have another suggestion for a Mexican restaurant, similar to the atmosphere of a place like Tortilla Flats, in Manhattan, somewhere either downtown or in the Hell's Kitchen area preferrably.
The group of people is all low-mid 20s, looking to spend about $20/person (not including alcohol, just the meal).
