moms 50th bday- help!
I'm planning my moms 50th bday, it will be 7 people (including a 13 and 14 yr old) I'm looking for a place where we can sort of dress up, nothing too fancy but not a place you'd wear jeans either. Also, I want to be able to laugh and have a good time without bothering anyone so maybe somewhere not too "serious" or that has a private area for groups. I'm willing to spend up to $100 a person if that includes drinks and tip. A tall order but any ideas?
In addition to my +1 for The NoMad...
Colicchio & Sons Tap Room - not the best food but beautiful space, great service, and plenty of large tables.
Dovetail - wonderful food and a classy (albeit not exactly trendy) ambiance
Mas Farmhouse - sleek design and solid farm-to-table cooking
L'Apicio - modern space, fun and affordable
Locanda Verde - a bit more rustic but fun
