BF's 35th bday is on New Years Day (poor guy). While we have NYE plans and I made reservations for The Modern for the following Saturday evening (since they aren't open Jan 1), I'm looking for something a bit lower key, and wallet friendly to acknowledge the occasion. Neighborhood isn't too impt, but should be friendly from Queens (so no UES/UWS).
A pub? Great burgers? He loves good beers so a place that had a lot of options would be nice.
