I am trying to find the perfect place to celebrate my 24th birthday. I had wanted to go to the Casablanca Tea Room in Soho as I read a lot of good things about that place and the room looked awesome and it sounds really different and fun. However.. it just closed down! So now I have to think of somewhere else and I would love any suggestions you can offer. There will be a group of 8-9 of us. I really want somewhere that has a good selection of appetizers/ tapas but also a full menu. I think 50 bucks a person would be around what I am looking for. I would really love somewhere around the west village, soho, or meat packing but I'm open to anything. Last year I went to Havana Alma de Cuba and loved it, but I would like to try something new and a little different so maybe not cuban/spanish food..however.i'm not absolutly opposed to it as I really enjoy that type of cuisine. I really want nice/different atmosphere and I love music all kinds so it be great if you could suggest any place that might have live..but that's not a must have. The 3 most important things to me are the food, the atmosphere and the service.. okay i need to stop rambling on now.. Thanks in advance for your suggestions :)
