    1. You can try Alta for Spanish tapas or Crispo for Italian. They should be doable at $50-60 including drinks, tips, and tax.

        I wouldn't call Crispo particularly trendy but what the heck -- the food's great and the atmosphere friendly.

          Alta would be a capital choice for fun, trendy birthday, though I wouldn't call it straight-up Spanish. It's more like Spanish with a helping hand from across the Mediterranean. Boqueria would be great for straight Spanish, though it's one block outside your range.
