in need of birthday dinner recommendations

looking for a reasonably priced restaurant for this coming weekend to celebrate my birthday. normally, picking a place to go would be easy, but for some reason, i'm stuck. looking for help from fellow chowhounders. here are the basic requirements:

- not looking to break the bank

- must be in boston area and T accessible

- looking to serve between 3 and 8

- must have either a byob policy (e.g., dok bua) or a bar. it is my birthday, after all :)

with that said, no dietary preferences ... pretty open to types of food. among my favorite places are dok bua, india quality, taiwan cafe, picco, and tacos lupita. any suggestions?

    How about Elephant Walk? The $29.99 tasting menu they offer is quite reasonably priced, IMHO, and offers some very interesting choices. They've got alcohol. And both the Cambridge and Boston locations are T accessible.

    Elephant Walk
    900 Beacon Street, Boston, MA 02215

    Elephant Walk
    2067 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02140

      Tasca in Brighton is great for your birthday. They offer a free birthday dinner and excellent sangria and tapas. It is also T accessible off the B line on Washington Street.
