Trendy Birthday Dinner Group
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?
oh also, just as another restaurant to give an idea of what type of place: last year the birthday dinner was at davidburke and donatella
You might want to try Buddha Bar or Babbo. My parents are very young for their age also and love to eat at a lot of trendy restaurants in the city! Babbo is going to be hard to get a reservation for a prime hour. Buddha bar might not be so bad though!
I WAS GOING TO SUGGEST BURKE AND DONATELLA. WE ARE IN THAT AGE GROUP AND LOVE ALL THE FUN PLACES....... WE WENT TO DEL POSTO LAST WEEK AND LOVED IT. THE SPACE IS BEAUTIFUL, WE ENJOYED THE FOOD AND THE PIANO PLAYING IN THE BACKGROUND ADDED A TOUCH OF ROMANCE.
