Restaurant Recommendations for either Pizza or Burgers for a fun thirtysomething's birthday?
Dees anyone have any recommendations for Manhattan-based Pizza or burger joints that offer a great night out for thirtysomethings?
Most of the "in" pizza places do not accept reservations. 5 Napkins Burger does, and it seems like the kind of place where a group of friends can have a good time.
Depends on how many people you'll have but for a larger group I might do Otto or Arturo's, especially if the latter is planning on having live jazz that night. The non-pizza food is really good at Otto, though, and they have special menus for big groups.
Go to Royale in the Village. There is a big garden out back with huge tables. Perfect for a birthday

Second the request for # of guests--it does make a diff. Pizza? Well there are, of course, many where a group could have a blast (e.g John's , www.johnspizzerianyc.com), but if you are willing to come DT to Stone Street, you won't beat Adrienne's (www.adriennespizzabar.com) with tables outside. To reiterate the point that was made above: They don't take reservations, but there are plenty of places (10 restaurants on one, walk street block) where you could wait or just have burgers.
