30th Birthday Dinner in Baltimore

I have searched the board and haven't been able to find exactly what I am looking for. I am planning a night out for my husband's 30th birthday. We are meeting friends at our house and then having a Limo pick us up to take us to dinner and a night on the town. It will be about 15 people. I wanted to find a place that could accommodate us and possibly do some sort of prix fix menu so my guest know what to expect in terms of cost. I called Petit Louis but they could only give us a 5pm seating. Any other suggestions?

  1. How about B&O American Brasserie they have extended restaurant week.

    Celebrated my cousin 40th birthday there last Sat.

    1. What about the Wine Market or Dogwood? I have been to similar events at both, which turned out really well.

      1. I have had success with groups at LaScala in Little Italy...

        1. Perhaps you could check out Tabrizi's. They host many weddings, so a birthday party should be easy for the restaurant to accommodate. I'm sure that Mr. Michael Tabrizi would work with you regarding a prix fixe menu. FoiGras

          1. We did something very similar for a friends 50 Th. Had 14 people at Pazo. Host worked with them to create specialty cocktails and a 10 course tasting menu which they printed and placed on each plate. Sat upstairs. Neat place, food was generally very good except for a miss here and there. Fun evening and staff was very accomidating.

              Another option would be Grace Garden a crummy but fantastic BYOB authentic Chinese restaurant near fort Meade. We went with 12 people and pre ordered a menu including items that require a 3 day advance notice. Search it on this page and you will see why people think it might be the best Chinese restaurant outside of china. Came to $75 per couple with an extremely generous tip. Really fun evening. Menu avail at including realistic pictures.

                I love GG but "best Chinese restaurant outside of China" sounds like irrational exuberance to me.

                1. re: lawhound

                  If you read the thread on GG there was a post from a Chinese guy who moved here from china who stated that. I have never been to China so I wouldn't know

                Wolf/Foreman does an excellent job with parties/private dining. Pazo has a few different private rooms, and Cinghiale has the farmhouse table in the Osteria side, as well as a private room off the Enoteca.
