Need suggestions for a small group (includes one die-hard foodie) looking for a light evening meal, around $40 per person for just the food, and a place where conversation is possible without shouting at each other. No restrictions on type of cuisine except no raw seafood. This will be for a Friday or Saturday night so the restaurant must accept reservations.
Any suggestions, including cheap eats, are welcomed. I realize though that some cheap eats won't take reservations.
