Graduation dinner for party of 8 on a Friday night

phr208 | May 9, 2012 03:41 PM

I'm graduating from medical school on Friday, June 8th. My family will be flying in from out of town, and they will also be meeting my boyfriend's parents for the first time. We're looking for a place for all 8 of us to go out to dinner to in Manhattan that evening. Looking to spend $50-75/person (give or take), including tax/tip/wine. I thought about Ping's Seafood or Oriental Garden - which place is better?

But also looking for other options that's not banquet Chinese or Italian (since my fam will be going to Babbo during their trip as well). Other than that, there's no restrictions on type of cuisine/location, though we're all foodies, so we're just looking for awesome food that won't cost a great fortune. Thanks!
