We have a friends/family coming from out of town next Saturday. This is somewhat last minute, but I am hoping we can get a reservation at a BYO for dinner. The ideal place would have excellent food, be priced at no more than $35-$40 pp, possibly have outside seating, tolerate some boisterousness (i.e., be "fun" for a small crowd), and be walking distance from queen village (2nd st/Catherine). We took 2 members of the group to Cochon previously and loved it, so that is a possibility (tho no outdoor seating, and I'd like to branch out). We'd be willing to cab it if the right place was across town, and might consider a non-byo that was fun/good food and walkable.
Is this an impossible dream? Where would you go? Any suggestions?
