Birthday dinner suggestions for 30-somethings on a Saturday evening...

Maglet | Jan 28, 2013 10:05 AM

I made reservations at Bistro Romano in Society Hill for my birthday next month. In total, my party will contain 10 people. Now, the way I picked the place was by looking at reviews from TripAdvisor and I like their menu offerings. But I was thinking that there might be a better choice for us. I'm hosting so, of course, I'm paying.

I'd like to find a place with a great laid-back atmosphere--ambiance is everything to me, great group rates ($30-$40 pp), and no tv's! Don't want the sports bar kinda scene. Just want a nice dinner with my group of friends where we would be able to hear each other reasonably well.

A nice wine selection would be nice. I wouldn't mind a BYO kinda thing either. Dress code? I'm wearing a fitted dress and heels. Nothing too dressy, but it is my birthday. ;-) I'd rather it be a place where I look around and it doesn't remind me of an Applebee's, ya know what I mean?

If anyone can help... I'd appreciate it! If there is any info missing that could better help you help me, just ask! Thanks!!
