First, thanks to all of you for your suggestions regarding my birthday dinner -- I did eventually get into Vetri, and can hardly wait. Will report back.
Now, I have to find someplace for a second birthday dinner with friends. Here are the parameters:
It's a Saturday night (2 weeks away);
there are 10 women attending;
the food must be good to great;
we'd like to be somewhere near bars to hit afterwards;
there must be something for vegetarians to eat;
and we'd like to spend no more than $30 per (including tax,tip);
BYOB is optional.
My thoughts thus far have run to Azafran (tho could they accomodate us?), or maybe one of the new places in Northern Liberties, or perhaps Serendipity?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
