So I'm calling the Hounds again for great ideas. A small group of us (about 8) are celebrating my birthday on Saturday night and we're looking for something with good food but also a fun, lively atmosphere, for up to around $25/person. Almost any cuisine (excepting Thai) and anywhere in Manhattan will work for this gang. I've looked all over and am stumped for someplace other than our usual standbys. Any recs?
