ideas for birthday restaurants - help!
I've been brain storming, but I need help...
I'd like a place that can accommodate most budgets (some of my friends are job-hunting right now). Looking for a place that is good with groups, has booze and parking.
I'm expecting about 16 people.
Polvo's - great drinks, patio seating can accommodate big parties
Phara's - new "Ararat" on North Loop. BYOB but pricey entrees
Ichiban - nice long booths to accommodate groups, not everyone likes sushi tho,
Home Slice - delicious and cheap, but parking in SoCo is a bitch... only beer and wine. waits can get very long and no reservations...
Habana - the ol' stand-by, a favorite
Imperia - new, never been
Phil's Icehouse - small, cheap, not festive, but I like ice cream and their patio
The Oasis - the drive is 20min, the food is over priced, but the drinks and the view is awesome... better for small groups
Casino El Camino - A favorite, but downtown is so ugh.
Opal's - good for groups, tho food gives me heartburn
Hut's Hamburgers - bison yay! but does it say birthday?
Eastside Cafe - good food, awesome desserts, nice atmosphere, fancy but not too pricey
Vino Vino - went there once, nice atmosphere, food was okay... but only wine for booze... and wine makes me sleepy
Any news ones to add to the list?
