Need suggestions for casual (last minute!) 30th birthday - tribeca, soho.

Hello Chowhounds,

My husband's 30th birthday is this weekend and friends have just decided, last minute, to drive up from DC to celebrate. I would Love some suggestions for a casual & inexpensive (we're all grad students and artists) dinner in the Soho/Tribeca/Chinatown area...somewhere that won't already be booked up for tomorrow night!

He's a scottish southern lad who loves comfort food, BBQ, Italian food, meat and potatoes, and a good Scotch/Whiskey - not into anything exotic (sadly!).

A friend suggested Locanda Verde, which looks good, I just thought I'd see what you foodies would suggest.

In terms of casual - we'd love somewhere relaxed/comfortable where we will be able to hear each other.
In terms of inexpensive - grad student friendly pricing. A price range of ~$15-25 or $30 on entrees would be perfect.

We are headed out to the Whiskey Tavern for some fun afterward if that gives a sense of our style:)
Thank you so much!

Whiskey Tavern
