Awesome Restaurant for 23 Birthday for a Guy

  • 10
  • Share

Hey everyone. My best friend is turning 23 and has put me in charge of finding a place to eat for his birthday. It's going to be a group of 8 of us. Entrees have to be between 20-30 and he wants it to be a fun atmosphere. It really doesn't matter what neighborhood it is or what cuisine. Just looking for a bunch of suggestions.

Thank You!

  1. Perla has a booth that will fit 8 people I think. Great food and atmosphere. Call them asap.

        help us help you - its a big city full of loads of restaurants. What does he like? is drinking at dinner important to you? how long in the future are you planning this for?

          its for july 29. As far as drinks are concerned., as long as anyone could get a good beer its fine. Cuisine wise he is very open as long as it's a fun atmosphere!

    2. Standard Grill might fit the bill.

            None of the above places has good food. They are bad value, party type places frequented by B&T / tourist types. Don't get me wrong - can be quite fun - just not about good food at all.

          2. Korean BBQ is what you make of it, particularly. I turned 25 at one of the private rooms at Kang Suh, which was otherwise pretty staid (for Ktown). Our small private room, however, turned into a house party between the soju and the grilling with a bunch of guys. If you don't order carefully, though, you can easily go above $30pp.

            A group of 8 can easily do the fried chicken dinner at Momofuku, you just have to make your reservations well ahead of time. If you're doing a Sunday meal, there are also lots of boozy brunches to pick from.

            1. Birreria at Eataly. Great food and beer and a nice view. High energy vibe.
