My very generous parents will be hosting a small dinner (about 6-8 people) in NYC in December to celebrate my 30th birthday. They have asked me to pick a spot. I would like to suggest a Manhattan restaurant with great food and a festive atmosphere. They must also take reservations.
I do not want to suggest a restaurant that will break the bank. No $90 fixed price or $30 entrees. Somewhere with most entrees topping out around $20. Probably try to stay under $100 with three courses and a drink or two.
So, basically, what's your favorite moderately priced restaurant? Where will we be blown away by the food? No cuisine is out of bounds.
Thanks in advance!
