Looking for a group-friendly dinner spot in the Village, SoHo, or Lower East Side for a friend's 25th. We are a group of 8 cute, single 20-somethings (hence the title of the message) that want to have a fun, delicious meal in a restaurant with a good atmosphere.
Recommended were: Chez es Saada, La Mela, Blue Ribbon and others. Any comments? Other recommendations?
