I have less than two months to plan for my 23rd birthday dinner and I'm sort of stuck about options. Last year I did a birthday brunch at Highline in the Meatpacking District, which was inexpensive, the food was good, and the atmosphere was quite trendy. I did have a wonderful birthday dinner with a friend a few days before it at Degustation.
This year, I still want something within the moderately-inexpensive side around $35 pp, the atmosphere is festive and/or upscale, and the food obviously has to be good.
I would love to go to Allen & Delancey. Perilla, Annisa, and Bar Blanc but knowing that a large percent of the ones I want to invite to a group dinner can't do so...
Any suggestions or thoughts can help.
Thanks in advance,
