40th Birthday Venue for 30+ ppl

Hi all-
I am looking for some suggestions for a restaurant or bar to hold my husband's 40th birthday party. I would like to do cocktails and passed appetizers, and would prefer a private room or one that is somewhat separate from the main restaurant/bar area. Any neighborhood is fine. I don't have a budget in mind, but don't want to break the bank, so no fine dining! Thanks very much.

    A few years ago, a friend hosted his 40th at Philip Marie down on Hudson St in the west Village. It was a good size crowd of 30+ people. They've got a private room downstairs.
    I'm not sure how much he shelled out but it was great food, good ambiance and the chef bent over backwards to make sure everyone was happy.
