Mom wants to take us out for dinner to celebrate my b-day on a Sunday. Some restaurants aren't open and others are part of Winterlicious, so busy. As well, the noise factor can be a problem. Price is not a problem. Thanks.
I would change the date to Saturday and try to go to Scaramouche instead (the earlier the reservation, the better). The older crowd loves that place, and the food is great. It's a bit up-town, but the compromise will pay dividends.
