Birthday dinner for 6 girls who eat

Planning a birthday dinner for 6 girls, preferably about $25-$30 pp. I've come across a lot of tapas bar suggestions, but the six of us are also pretty big on eating well without having to spend too much money. No real preference on cuisine, and no place really too loud or super trendy, but either fun + lively or intimate and cozy?

I've made reservations at 41 Greenwich Avenue, Rayuela and Sakagura -- any thoughts? We've been to Sakagura before and loved it, but I'm thinking of trying something new. 41 Greenwich Avenue sounds cute, but I haven't heard much about it... same with Rayuela.

      Blue Ribbon Bakery = intimate and cozy. Don't forget the famous chocolate chip bread pudding for dessert. omg, to die.

        We've actually been there before for another birthday dinner (although great places both) and trying to find something new!

          We've been to Rayuela several times (and earlier this year) and have had good experiences.
