Fun spot for 3 girls to eat and celebrate 1 girl's 40th birthday?

Would love suggestion for a place to go with my 28 year old sister (a single, tall drink of water), my childhood friend and me (both married with kids). It's my 40th birthday and I'd like to have a lazy dinner and drinks---nothing super fancy but lots of fun with good opportunity for people watching. Would like a place that plays cool music (cool to me is old school R&B. funk, disco, 80s hiphop, blue-eyed soul like Hall & Oates, Michael McDonald etc). Really should have been born in '52, not '72. :-)

My food tastes are broad so I'm open to a lot of different stuff. And it can be pretty much anywhere in the city.

  1. Torrisi Italian Specialties has a great playlist, which I didn't expect -- it's all old school R&B from which other artists have sampled, if that makes sense. All of the original cuts.

      Thanks for the suggestion, Kathryn. The menu looks pretty good and the music sounds right up my alley.

      Do you know anything about Barramundi? I was reading the reviews on yelp and it appealed to me.
