Help! 30th B-day party venue--Restaurant or raw space

Trying to plan a party for my boyfriend's 30th which is in about 10 days from now. Looking something with a really lively atmosphere, good food, but not terribly expensive (shooting for max $65-70 pp). Also would like to have it downtown. Might do smaller 12-15 or could go for a bigger group and just do drinks and passed appetizers.

Also considering renting out a raw space and doing the food and wine myself, but not sure where to look.

Any ideas would be GREATLY appreciated!

Where to Celebrate?

Thanks for the input. Have you tried Allen & Delancy, Falai or Lupa? If so, which would you recommend? Any other suggestions for great cocktails?

Where to Celebrate?

Hi, I am turning 24 in couple of weeks and I want to go out to dinner with a group of friends-- maybe a group of 12 at the most--somewhere downtown. Looking for a memorable dining experience at a somewhat reasonable price. Also-- trying to think of something fun to do afterwards--possibly live music w/or wo dancing + great cocktails. This is the list that I have so far. :

-Allen & Delancy
-WD 50
-Momofuku Ssam Bar


Would love to hear your thoughts!

Food and Wine Pairing Dilemma [moved from Manhattan board]

So, I have a bottle of Charmes Chambertin Domaine & Selection 2005 that I plan on opening this Friday night and I want to pair it with something amazing. Any suggestions?
