40th Birthday challenge (longish)

junker | Aug 22, 2005 02:57 PM

It's my 40th coming up. If such a beast exists, I figure Chowhounders will have some suggestions for a place that meets the following parameters.
*2 of us (including me) are vegetarian, 3 of us aren't. Not looking for a vegetarian place tho.
*Extra interesting interior (like Lever House or Town).
*Under $100/p including wine.
*No Indian, Chinese, Japanese etc. Not that it can't be challenging, we just need to find a few non-challenging dishes for my dad.
*Quiet enough to have a conversation.

In the past, we've succesfully done Union Square Cafe, Cafe Boulud, Tamarind, Aquavit (tho not for under $100). Looking for something like Eleven Madison or Public but with more than one vegetarian option. There must be something I'm not thinking of here.

thx in advance.
