Looking for a birthday spot...
My 28th birthday is coming up and I need to find a spot!
*Cuisine: I'm pretty much up for anything tasty, but needs to have both meat and veggie stuff to keep everyone satisfied. And desserts and a nice wine/port selection wouldn't hurt, either. :)
*Group size: 10 at most
*Price range: Well, here is the hard part...Average entree price really can't go above $15/person. Lower if possible. But still good quality. Some of us are non-profit strugglers while others are not so struggling - I just want to make sure that everyone is comfy.
*If possible, I would also prefer to be around a few good, not stuffy bars. Example of the kind of atmosphere I dig: Barrow St. Ale House, Belgian Room
*Location: Anyplace below 14th St. or Brooklyn (Park Slope, Williamsburg, Bay Ridge).
I had my birthday at Cafe Mogador last year, which was perfect, so I would say a place that is similar-ish. Great vibe, not stuffy, quality food, priced for everyone.
And thanks in advance for y'alls sugestions!
I think the group table near the bar at Frank would be a blast for a birthday group outing. Quality Italian food at prices within your budget. Of course, it'd be quite noisy but appears to be a lot of fun and you can't go wrong with the food.
I think Da Andrea in the West Village might fit the bill. It's small, but has a very friendly atmosphere, and I think they might be able to accommodate your group. Very reasonably-priced wine, too.
Thanks all! I'll definitely be "test driving" these places (some people will be from out of town...I just want to make sure everyone is happy.)!
Keep those suggestions coming! :)
Thanks so very much!
See if Supper will let you reserve the downstairs large table. They did this for my b-day last year and everyone LOVED it. Same owner as Frank, and a little less chaotic.
Danal, a French Bistro on 10th street off 3rd, has a really great back room with a rustic ambience and a table that seats 10. The menu prices should be right in your price range (I think). It is a terrific place for a group and is walking distance from the bar scene on st. marks and 2nd avenue.
