Weekend Visit in March - Looking for suggestions

Asia de Cuba, Madison & 37th, is an Asian-Cuban fusion restaurant. interesting food, good atmosphere.Just keep in mind that for 2 people they recommend ordering 2 appetizers & 1 entree. The portions are very large so that's enough for 2 people.

Fort Greene to Gramercy Relo' - Neighborhood Recommendations?

Inexpensive mid-week dinners try:
Lamarca on 22nd & 3rd, great pasta, good prices
Posto on 18th & 2nd, thin crust pizza
Telephone Bar & Grill on 11th & 2nd
The Lantern on 18th & 2nd, they have pretty good deals before 7 pm
Japonais on 18th & park has happy hour every night until 10 pm. $4 drinks and food specials
S'mac 12th between 1st & 2nd, mac n cheese
The Smith, 3rd and & 11th

Delivery - all of the above deliver as well, except for the happy hour special at Japonais

Weekend Brunch:
Barbounia, 22nd and park
Pipa, 19th & broadway
Rosa Mexicana, 18th & broadway
Coffee Shop, Union Square
Telephone Bar and Grill
The Smith

Coffee: Irving coffee on Irving and 18th (right by Casa Mono)

There's also the Friend of a Farmer place on Irving for brunch. It's next to Irving Coffee. There's always a really long line to get in, though. I've eaten there a couple of times and personally don't think the line is worth it, but something attracts a large crowd there every weekend.

Fun, casual place for a birthday?

Hi. I'm looking for something casual for a birthday get together that people can come & go, i.e. not a sit down dinner requiring an exact # for reservations (too many friends have a 'maybe' status). That's also fun & interactive. We did Biny for another birthday, which is sort of what I'm looking for, but someting new. People can come, eat, drink, have fun. It would be about 12-15 people, maybe a few more. TIA!
