So I'm calling the Hounds again for great ideas. A small group of us (about 8) are celebrating my birthday on Saturday night and we're looking for something with good food but also a fun, lively atmosphere, for up to around $25/person. Almost any cuisine (excepting Thai) and anywhere in Manhattan will work for this gang. I've looked all over and am stumped for someplace other than our usual standbys. Any recs?

Thanks,
:) Ween

            At your price range I'd recommend La Fortuna.
