Looking for a birthday spot...

Hi all,
My 28th birthday is coming up and I need to find a spot!
The details:
*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!

      Honestly, I am super new in Brooklyn. I'll definitely check them out! Is this the Kinara on 9th St and 5th Ave?

    2. that's it. you should go check them out. atmosphere isn't totally their strong point, but i like it there. i've also had really fun big group dinners at Tacos Nuevo Mexico, 5th Ave. between 11th and 12th (a big favorite on this board) which it attached to a full bar. atmosphere isn't exactly their strong point either but it's very good & cheap mexican food.
