i realize there are plenty of birthday threads, but i've read through many and have not found what i'm looking for. next Sunday will be the gf's 35th birthday and we'll be dining with three friends. that's five people for the math deficient! last year we went to Butter and really enjoyed it. i'd like to do something similar but a bit less formal. i'm leaning towards Spice Market, as we've never been and the space seems appealing. while it's critical that the food be great, i also want a place with an interesting decor.
Pranna is another option based on price, menu and decor, but i don't know much about the place.
appreciate any replies.
any neighborhood, any cuisine (except Korean since we eat that almost every day).
