Need a new 29th Birthday Party locaiton asap!!

ss03ny Feb 24, 2012 11:34 AM

I originally posted a question asking for restaurant recommendations for a birthday party I am having with 10 to 12 people. After much research I decided to go with Ilili. However, since then more people have decided to come. It's Ilili's policy to charge $60 a person for groups over 12. This does not include alcohol. As some of my friends found this price steep (especially because they will be coming from long island and taking the lirr to get there) I am now forced to find another place. I have to make reservations somewhere else for March 3rd, which doesn't give me much time. I am at a loss as to where we can go. I need a restaurant, preferably in midtown that will cost about 50 to 60 a person, not prix fixe and vegetarian friendly (my boyfriend and I are veg). I also need it to be trendy enough for a 29 year old birthday party. Please help!!!
