I would appreciate suggestions for dinner for early September (so no book 1 month ahead options) to celebrate a good friend's 70th Bday. The rest of us are a wide range of ages and tastes. But, the guest of honor likes fairly quiet dining, nice decor, nothing too exotic but still fun and interesting. And not too dark--we all find it funny when we can't read the menus!!!
The rest of us would like about $50 - 60 per person after tax/tip with 1-2 drinks, Midtown to Downtown, not stuffy. TIA.
