Restaurant recommendation for group 30th birthday dinner

u

I'm looking for a downtown Manhattan restaurant with a private/semi-private room for a 30th birthday dinner with around 15 friends. I've looked into Bobo, which has a small private garden area, but am worried about the $65/pp menu (I wish I could afford to pay for all my friends, but living in the city doesn't allow me that much extra spending $$!). I don't need a place with food like EMP, but would like good food, good drinks and fun atmosphere.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

    Happy Birthday!

    Beppe would be perfect for you! They have private dining room and a their daily pre-fixe menu is mouthwatering good!

      I literally JUST did this search last week for a friend who threw an impromptu group dinner on a Friday evening at 9 (with a couple day's notice). From the list of spots that I reached out to (there were tons), here are some that did not require prix-fixe menus and/or did not have a steep prix-fixe:
      Jo's
      Jane: this is where we ended up, and I was very impressed and pleased with the atmosphere, drinks and food
