30th Birthday Celebration

My boyfriend's 30th Bday is coming up in October I am looking for restaurant and bar/lounge recommendation.

He likes Italian, Indian and I guess "American" cuisine. He lives in the East Village so somewhere around there (Union Sq, West Village included) would be ideal. Not too expensive, entrees around $25. There will be about 6-8 of us for dinner and then we want to meet the rest of his friends at a bar not too far away. Somewhere nice but where the drinks are varied and not outrageously priced and where everyone can get in. Something along the lines of Forum or Underbar.

Thanks for your help.

  1. Bar Stuzzichini is a ton of fun with a group of people. You can order many different appetizers, and then whatever main courses you want. You should be able to do it in your price range.

    Artisanale would be another choice, but you'd have to like cheese and bistro food.

    For my 30th, my parents, BF and I went to the Four Seasons, the first time I had ever eaten there. Even though we were seated in the pool room, and not out with the celebs in the grill room, they still took excellent care of us. That was a treat, and not one I often get.
