Looking for a cheap-to-moderate spot for a dinner with visiting girlfriends on a Saturday night, before going to a bar at Bleecker and Thompson. Friends are visiting from out of town, so I'd like to take them some place cute and fun, but they're definitely on a budget. We'll be going to Schiller's on the Friday before, which is probably in the price range of what we want to spend on Saturday -- but cheaper would be better. Ideas I've had (some ruled out):
Lupa -- too hard to get a table, probably a bit expensive as well
Jane -- never been, is it any good?
Corner Bistro -- also a long wait and a bit of a walk, but could be fun if they are in the mood for burgers
Dos Caminos -- kind of overpriced, food not so great
Hummus Place -- never been, is it possible to make a dinner meal out of their offerings? Also is it truly BYOB?
I'd really appreciate any reactions and additional thoughts.
