Etiquette and recs for a birthday dinner?

nyc.girl | Oct 9, 2007 10:01 PM

I'm taking a few friends out for a birthday dinner. I don't want to spend over $50 per person, but I don't want anyone to feel uncomfortable about how much food they should be ordering.

I figured the best way would be to order a tasting menu for the table when I make reservations, but I can't find a decent one for $50 (I'm looking for a restaurant a little more fun and fancy than Degustation or Alta).

Does anyone have any recommendations for a good, cheap tasting menu? Alternatively, what else can I do if I decide to go with a fun and fancy restaurant? (In which case, any suggestions for a hot new restaurant for a bunch of young 20-somethings?)
