My wife and I are celebrating our birthdays about a month apart in the fall. As its a birthday that ends in a zero for both of us, we thought we may want to celebrate by taking a group of 10 (including us) out to dinner. I'm looking to spend $30-$35 a person but not willing to settle for a boring, prix fixe menu. We are looking for a place with good food and a fun atmosphere. Because of the price constraints, I think we are better off a BYOBs where we can supply the alcohol. The last thing is I would like for the place to allow us to bring in a birthday cake for dessert. My initial thoughts are the following restaurants:
Any thoughts on these places and other suggestions would be welcome!! Thanks!
