Help me w/ a Birthday Dinner
- Frank Kramer
Looking for a place for two couples to go out for a
40th birthday celebration. Somewhat expensive ok
without being ultra expensive. Somewhat critical
group-so really great food is a must! Thanks.
I had dinner twice last year at Savoy (Prince & Crosby).

downstairs is the "bread-bar" - with snacks and so
on and they do a variety of tandoor-prepared breads.
Upstairs dining room is a beautiful room.
