Im looking for a fun place to do a New Year's dinner for about 10-12 people. I think we are looking to sit down around 8, probably leave around 10-10:30, so unless there is a very compelling reason, no need for the restaurant to have any formal champagne toast or anything like that. We are extremely flexible with the location and the cuisine.
The tricky part is that the group is on a pretty tight budget. We wouldnt want to spend more than$20 on an entree, and were looking into the Inoteca 3 course menu which is around $25-30 before drinks. We are in our 20s and looking for a place that doesnt have to be too sceney per se, but should have a fun atmosphere, just a place conducive to celebration. Any ideas?
