Some of my friends and I are trying to plan a birthday dinner for another friend. We are having a really hard time settling on a place because some of the people are really insistent on going to one of the big name downtown steakhouses such as Abe & Louis, Grill 23, Blackfin, Morton's, etc. However, there are other people that really don't want to spend that kind of money.
If anyone has any restaurant suggestions for us this is the list of things we're looking for: $25-$30 an entree range; someplace we can make a "destination dinner" where we can linger over appetizers, entree, dessert, drinks, and coffee; able to handle a party of 8-10 people; something in the steak/seafood type of food; and none of us live in the city and are scattered all around the metro area so anywhere inside 128 including downtown would work.
Thanks so much for any help!
