birthday dinner for six 17 year old girls

My daughter wants to celebrate her birthday at the Cheesecake factory in Hackensack tomorrow night. I don't want to risk having to wait around 1- 2 hours for a table for 9 people.

Any suggestions? One girl is highly allergic to nuts and and shell food, which is why we are not going hibachi or sushi. One friend had her birthday at the Melting Pot and the other at a Tea Room.

I was hoping to find something with a little ambiance....not that the Cheesecake Factory offers any.

  1. Not really great food but a fabulous atmosphere, sure to be loved by 17 yo girls - Chakra
    If they want to try (barely) indian food - Mantra on the other side of rt 4 also has a more sophisticated atmosphere.
