while i thought it would be great to have my birthday on a saturday (7/8), what it's turning out to mean is that places i want to go are full.
i've got a party of 15-20 people, most likely 15. meals need to be under $20 a person, without drinks. in that vein, it would be great if the place had a bar, but if there's just beer/wine, that's ok. i'd really like cloth napkins and asian food, but i'm running out of time to be picky. i just need something delicious.
though the food isn't fantastic, shanghai 1930 does decent chinese with a full bar and nice decor with live music. but it's full.
other places i can think of won't take reservations, which isn't a good idea for a party of 15...the soma osha thai? charanga? chachacha? burma superstar? kabuto? bodega bistro? ppq? there have to be more options than that. what about the chinese place next to ton kiang? golden river?
my friends think i always choose great restaurants. *please* send me somewhere good for my birthday!
