I need to tell you about a place where I went for a birthday dinner the other week. Milon!!! (93 1st ave) Milon serves bangladesh/indian food and this block is filled with restaurants of the same type of kitchen and even the staircase to this restaurant is shared with 3 similar. Milon is the one on the upper left side.
The restaurant doesn’t serve alcohol so instead you are welcome to bring your own – Perfect for the 20 of us (mostly students)! Milon is TINY but the staff work very well to fit a LOT of people. It’s crowded but you don’t mind. As you can see on the picture hanging lights fill up the ceiling and the atmosphere is so cool! Food is good but nothing amazing, but again – you don’t care. Just keep watching the decoration and you will be satisfied!
Perfect pre game place I would say.
