Trendy Birthday Place?? Help

b

Looking for a trendy birthday place that's fun, good food, and sort of on the trendier side for a small group of about 8 people.

Something similar to 33 Lounge or Match type atmosphere? Any ideas?

    Cuchi Cuchi, Noir, 28 Degrees.

      I agree with Cuchi Cuchi. We have done 2-3 Birthday parties there over the last couple of years and the way the menu is set up has worked really well for groups of 8.

        I'll third Cuchi Cuchi. They accomodated a birthday party I attended there beautifully, and I often find myself there after work with a group of 6-8 and have never felt cramped - and of course the tapas portions are perfect for sharing.

        Plus, if you're really nice to them, they might let you wear some of their jewels - always a birthday treat.

          Union Bar and Grill would be good too.

            agree with kristinayee, just went to union and loved it.

            the bar area at sorellina is great and i believe you can eat there. my personal favorite. maybe houstons?

              Toro is a kind of trendy place but they dont do reservations. You would have to get there early and you would probably have to sit at one of the tall center tables. It gets really crowded so I'm not sure how you'd like it. Bar hopping in the south end is fun after dinner though.

                I've been to birthday parties at 28 Degrees, Tremont 647, Cuchi Cuchi. Any of these would be fun.

                If it's nice out, I would go to 28 Degrees b/c they have a great patio. Cuchi Cuchi is great fun but gets expensive really fast. Tremont 647 has a great private room, and then a hopping bar for after dinner.

                  Many good suggestions here already. I think shabu-shabu is fun for a group, and it is undeniably in vogue right now. I personally enjoy Kaze in Chinatown, but most of them are pretty good.
