Ok, so I'm trying to pick a place for my birthday. Here are the criteria:
It'll be me, my parents, my brother and his wife, and possibly a few friends of mine (the most we would be is 8). I'm figuring 3-4 appetizers to split, entrees for everyone, a couple desserts, and some drinks (1 a person, maybe 2 for some people), and getting out of there for $25 - $30/pp.
Because of the size of the party, some place we can make a reservation or some place where there won't be too much of a wait (it'll be a weeknight).
I'm partial to seafood, also to mexican or southwestern. I was thinking Miracle Grill - nice outdoor seating is always a plus - but figured I'd ask around for some suggestions. preferable locations are downtown or hell's kitchen area, but other locations would work too.
