Suggestions for 40th birthday party

GabLips | Apr 2, 2013 10:48 AM

Hi everyone,

(I've searched for relevant threads but haven't found anything on point so am creating a new post - would welcome relevant threads if you know of them :-)) I'm turning 40 and want to put together a fun, different, relaxed dinner experience for friends, preferably in a semi-private space. It will be about 20-40 people (sorry for the big spread, have no idea what headcount will be) all in their 30's and 40's and I'll need to ask guests to pay their own way so prefer a prix fixe ($40-$50/head, not including alcohol). I'm looking for a place with a fun atmosphere, preferably one where we could dance afterwards. I've looked at Sammy's and Mehanata and they're not quite right - I need to take it one small notch down. Flexible regarding food type but prefer Israeli/middle eastern, mexican, korean or something healthy -- not a big pork eater and can't do the raw fish thing. Any suggestions would be welcome!
