Cheapish 15-person birthday dinner off the L in Williamsburg/Greenpoint

Hey guys,

My friend is coming to town for her birthday this weekend, and we're looking for a good place to have a birthday dinner for her (actually, a surprise birthday dinner) in the Williamsburg/Greenpoint area, preferably off the L so it's easy for the Manhattanites who will be coming.

The problem is, we want something that can accommodate at least 10-15 people on a Saturday night, and something where at least half the entrees are no more than $20. In other words, I don't want the only thing under 20 bucks to be the $19 risotto with garden peas (read: a sprinkling that cost 35 cents to defrost and throw in the pot). We'll probably be getting wine and such, so I don't want to repeat a recent birthday dinner in which we were all shamed into spending $60 per person. You know the deal.

All in all, I'd like it to be delicious and birthday fancy looking, but not too fancily priced in the end. Any recommendations?
