A group of four old college girlfriends are getting together tonight for dinner. We'd like to keep it relatively inexpensive (under $30/person w/ beverage). Looking for a fun (not too sceney, though) atmosphere -- we'd like to be able to hear each other talk. Thinking.. "ethnic" food.. anything but New American.
What about the restaurants on Cornelia St. (Home, Cornelia St. Cafe.. Le Gigot)? Any other thoughts for the W. Village?
Also, has anyone been to Schiller's recently? I haven't been in a year, and wonder if it's as good as I remember. I recall that it was a bit loud, though.
