Mud Truck vs. Starbucks

Beerhaus in the West Village/NYU area?

are you thinking of Vol de Nuit (or the belgian beer bar, as everyone calls it). it's on w 4th at 6th ave. you walk through a courtyard (maybe that's monastery like?) and there are red lights in the back.

downtown rec for a group?

Thanks Lucia.

How about public? some of us are architects, so that seems like a cool atmosphere.

downtown rec for a group?

okay, i know, this is the most over asked question ever. after looking through old posts, i've come up with these ideas:

Otto
Aquagrill
'inoteca
Blue Ribbon
Mara's Homemade
Sala

i've been to Blue Ribbon and love it, and assuming 'inoteca is great as i've been to ino, but know nothing about the rest. thoughts? anything more inventive? thanks!

I'm trying to think of a fun place for a group of 13 people (in their 20's and 30s), preferrably downtown (village, LES, etc) or even Brooklyn. It will be for dinner on a Sunday, not looking for an all inclusive kind of thing but i imagine we'll order a la carte (anywhere from 10-30 per person, not including drinks). No particular cuisine, but something with great atmosphere, good drinks, etc. I've noticed a lot of people recommend Otto for larger groups, and that's a thought, but any other recommendations would be much appreciated!
