I'm trying to plan a 35th birthday dinner for my friend for next Saturday for us and our husbands. I want someplace fun with good food and not over-the-top expensive. She loves Buddakan, so someplece with that kind of scene would be good. I thought Beauty and Essex (haven't been) or Spice Market (didn't love when I went but it was decent atmosphere) but both are booked. I have a back-up reservation at Public, which I went to awhile back and thought was pretty good. Tapas, Asian fusion, New American, Greek, or Italian -- that kind of thing. We're pretty open about location. Thanks!!
