Brooklyn Birthday Dinner

f
fenix409 Feb 24, 2012 07:24 AM

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a nice restaurant for a birthday dinner. I'm not sure how many adults will be going (mid-to-late 20s), no children. I live in Fort Greene, so I'd like to go in Park Slope, Gowanus, Cobble Hill, Fort Greene, Carroll Gardens, Downtown Brooklyn, or Boerum Hill. I just moved to NYC in January so I don't know anywhere to go.

I'm looking for a place that accepts reservations, Italian, Greek or possibly American, and accepts cash AND cards, $20 or so per entree. I was looking at Convivium Osteria but it looks like they only accept cash or American Express.

I would love to hear your thoughts!

    Buttermilk Channel takes reservations for 5 or more.

      You have so many options, it's almost paralyzing! A lot of places that "don't take reservations" will take them for larger groups, as thegforceny indicated for Buttermilk Channel.

      I'll just rattle off a couple of options off the top of my head:

      Rucola
      Bar Tabac (rez?)
      Lunetta
      Char No. 4
      Seersucker
      Al Mar
      Hopeland
      Bocca Lupo
      Frankies 457
      Prime Meats

      ... and so many more... Once you have a better idea of headcount, you'll be able to inquire about reservations for 6,8,10, etc. A lot of places that won't normally take a reservation may make an exception for a larger group.
