need rec's.....birthday dinner for 8

Hi All,
Looking for a place downtown...........casual, good food, fun atmosphere for Wednesday night. 8 friends to meet up for dinner/drinks. Any type of food. Wanted to go to Inoteca but parties over 7 have to do a pre-fix and we prefer a la carte.

Thanks in advance!

NYC itinerary...what do you think?

wow....that's not the most positive response Kathryn. Almost sounds like all the choices are not great. I don't agree. Some are great choices.
Katz's terrific, donut plant as well
Tacos - either Taqueria at La Esquina on Kenmare or the Mahi Mahi tacos at Dos Caminos on West Broadway. both great
Billy's for cupcakes also a great choice
vietnamese - saigon 48
japanese - tomo sushi on Sullivan or Thompson Street. can't remember which street
lunch at 5 points for an awesome burger or lunch at Mary's fish camp for great fish
Greek - Ethos on 3rd btw. 33/34 or pylos on 7th btw. 1st/A

we are lacking in the Middle Eastern dept for sure.
Pizza - love Franny's in Park Slope for thin crust or Joes on Carmine for a regular slice
Chinese - Green Bo on Bayard - total dump but lots of great food for cheap
Bagels - you can go to any bagel shop really. All good
Italian - Del Anima on 8th Ave/ Jane - amazing

Happy Eating! Have a great trip:)

Help....looking for Rustic atmosphere with good food

Please help. I am in search of a restaurant that has a rustic feeling. something that you find in Italy or South America. That raw, beautiful ambience. Food could be Italian, Greek, American. Anything but Asian.

Preferably below 23rd Street, east or west and could be Brooklyn. Price not an issue. I've been having a really hard time finding a place that isn't so modernized.

Any rec's would be great.

Thanks in advance

Burgers! Please Opine regarding your faves

The Stand is great! One of the best burgers I've had. And, they grind their own meat. Very fresh, juicy, and big!

Try it!

Vegetarian / Carnivore Dinner suggestions!

you have plenty of options.
Frankies spumontino on Clinton accomodates both. Any good Italian restaurant also. Lots of pasta options and seafood as well as meat. Also, the Stand on 12th street. Amazing burgers and the best veggie burger
