surprise lunch for mom's birthday

arm | Oct 31, 2004 09:00 PM

hi. i'm looking for recommendations for a restaurant to take my mother and twelve of her female friends to celebrate her 55th birthday. this is for weekend lunch/brunch.

ideally, it would be somewhere that's exciting (so that she feels special) but not such a scene (so that she doesn't feel out of place). i was thinking of patria, but it closed and now i'm stuck. anywhere in manhattan is fine--central is definitely better.

really, i just need a place that twelve of us can sit and eat and talk comfortably and feel like it's a girl's day out. my mother loves seafood, but i'm open to any suggestions!
