Meeting a friend for dinner and drinks, a little bit of a scene would be fun, but not mandatory. Maybe dinner and a walk to somewhere different for a drink? Looking for relatively inexpensive AND diet-friendly (no Indian) in Central, Harvard or Inman areas.
Outdoor/patio would be great (if the weather holds).
Thinking about Central Kitchen/Enormous Room, Cafe Baraka (too expensive?)
Grafton Street or Redline, but eh.
Friend is allergic so shellfish so Moqueca is out.
