Planning my birthday now, looking for a fun place, not too trendy but still fun and maybe has potential for dancing, a place where we could all eat delicious food at a big table and then either stay there or move to another room/upstairs/downstairs for more drinking and FUN. Downtown Manhattan only.
Important considerations: Want it to be good food, can be any type of cuisine although ideally a place where food is meant to be shared. Really don't want to have to deal with terrible service and mean pretentious pretty people for my birthday.
Places I've been thinking of: Lani Kai, Los Feliz, Cienfuegos
