So I am being treated to dinner by a friend but it's up to me to pick the place since he's from out of town. This is sort of our first date so I'm looking for a place that has good food and drinks and more of a lively, upbeat atmosphere appropriate for people in their mid-twenties vs. a quiet romantic place. I think a tapas place or anywhere we could share small plates would be fun. We're open to all sorts of cuisine. Since he's treating I don't want a place that's outrageously expensive. I'd like to keep it around $100 total. Anywhere within a 10-15 block vicinity of Union Sq would work but I'm willing to venture further for something really good. Post dinner bar suggestions are welcome too. Thanks.
