My birthday's fast approaching, and in keeping with my tradition of celebrating it at a MEMORABLE eatery, I'm trying to find a place that fits that description. Past examples: Bahooka's, Guelaguetza, Lowenbrau Keller... You get the idea - a place
a) with an extremely UNIQUE ambience
b) with decent-to-great food (while food's less important in this case, I still want it to be edible!)
c) reasonably priced
d) within a 10-mile (give or take) radius of the city
Ethnic restaurants are great (and seem to most often fit the specs. Although if Clifton's was open later at night, I have it there in heartbeat). If it's got a private room, or is small enough to take over with 30 people (eg. Polka) -- so much the better.
I welcome all suggestions. (And would be happy to invite the winner -- as my guest -- to the celebration... which is always a blast!)
