"I get together with a group of friend with whom I went to high school (over 30 years ago now!) every few months for what we call "Boys Night Out." It's an opportunity for us to get together without families and relive our glory days, at least a tiny bit. We take turns rotating who gets to choose where we eat. Restaurants have included Il Buco Alimentari, Café Katja, the Cannibal, Quality Meats, Empellon, Momofuku Ssam Bar, Char No. 4, etc. What I am looking for is a relatively affordable place that has great food to share along with an interesting beer list (wine is good too) and drinks. Any thoughts to help us find that ideal place for a bunch of middle-aged guys who want to spend an evening catching up with each other and ignoring the wider world?"
