We're getting together on a Wednesday evening with friends who do not like anything "weird." By "weird" I mean that even SUSHI would be out of the question. Nothing ethnic or close to ethnic. Mexican is acceptable. Zen Palate, on the other hand, would be "weird".
It also needs to be adjacent to Union Square due to travel and logistics considerations. $20-25pp (w/o alcohol - they don't drink).
i'm kind of lost here.
