When we think affordable weeknight dinner, we immediately think of Lolita, a tiny Mexican spot in Midtown Village that’s always crowded but not annoyingly so. The narrow space is dimly lit, and works just as well for splitting a bottle of wine and some queso fundido with a few friends as it does for a date or solo dinner at the bar. If you’re here in the summer, they also set up a bunch of four-tops out front on the sidewalk that you can call ahead and claim.
