Looking for suggestions for a 30th birthday party next Saturday night for 10 people -- there are only 2 prerequisites -- good food and good drink. The majority are from NYC if that helps.

    It is relatively short notice though if you mean Sept. 4th, that is Labor Day weekend when lots of folks are away. You could start by checking OpenTable to see what's available.

    As for Hound suggestions, it would also help to know a few other things. Cuisine preferences? Avoids? Casual or fancy? Any particular neighborhoods? Per person budget for food only (drinks, tax & tip additional)?

      Great suggestion, but note that a lot of restaurants on OpenTable.com restrict bookings of large groups online. They prefer that you call.

      But, yes, more specifics will help. When you say good drink, so you mean wine, beer, and/or cocktails?

      Buddakan!!! It is amazing for groups. You order a ton of stuff, and you get to try everything. The best part, is its all fantastic. You must, must, must get the edamame dumplings, and the peanut bombe for dessert. The place is a blast, and you will have no problem getting reservations.

      Have a great birthday!
