I’m looking for somewhere fun to celebrate my 19th birthday on Saturday night with 10-15 friends. I had my heart set on Everest, but they don’t take regular large-party reservations and from my conversation with a guy there today, it doesn’t seem like a Saturday dinner will work out.
Can anyone suggest a restaurant that will still be open for reservations for this Saturday night and is easy to access by subway (preferably downtown somewhere)? I’m looking for reasonable prices, a decent drink selection (you only turn 19 once), and a more upscale ambiance- somewhere that we can dress up (nice tops and dark jeans and/or cocktail dresses), but nothing too formal.
I was looking at similar posts and compiled a list of some restaurant I’m going to look into tonight: Insomnia, Sultan’s Tent, Rosebud, Kalendar, Fire on the East Side, Brassaii, Boba, amuse Bouche, Bodega, Focaccia, and Sequel. If anyone can recommend any of these or make any new suggestions, I would really appreciate it!
Thanks so much!
