Hi! I'm a local Seattleite (3 years now) who loves trying new restaurants. I'm having a birthday party dinner with 5 friends next week and am hoping to find a hidden gem! Not too spendy, but mid-range and memorable. Here's a list of places that I've thought of because I haven't been to any of them. I've done most of the high-end and would like to surprise my friends by picking someplace that won't kill our pocketbooks. (What's up with friends inviting you to dinner/bday parties that end up costing $80 per person???)
I would love your opinions on whether any of these would be good for a lively party of 6 that likes a fun time but also would like to hear eachother across the table. If I'm missing anything good, please let me know. Thanks!
