My mom's 55th birthday is in a month, and I am trying to think of someplace fun and trendy/hip with great food to go as a surprise.
My parents and their friends are very young 50-somethings- we joke that they are cooler than all the 20-something kids.
I tried to get a reservation for Stanton Social, but they are all booked. Also thought of Buddakan, but they went there last weekend, plus were not impressed by the food, although they liked the scene.
Any other ideas on the same general level as these? Fun, trendy, good food?
