Hello - I would really appreciate any and all restaurant suggestions. Here's the deal - i want to throw a birthday lunch for my mom's 60th birthday on Saturday and invite her mother, a few friends and relatives. So about 8-10 women ranging in age from 30 - 80. What restaurant would you guys suggest. None of the women involved are foodies and some would probably feel a little uncomfortable in a place like gramercy tavern, per se, or Bouley. Those places are also a little too pricey. Essentially I'm looking for a relaxed, casual restaurant that would still be appropriate for a special occasion like this Birthday lunch. Price - around $30-$40 per person.
So - nice - but on a budget. I've thought a place like City Winery might work.
