50th Birthday in Buffalo

Hi everyone,

My mom is celebrating her 50th birthday on the Friday before Memorial Day. I'd like to do a little surprise dinner for her at a great restaurant in the area...I'm from Buffalo, but have been living in New York for 5 years so I'm a little out of touch :)

Something that would be special enough for a 50th birthday...some of the ideas my dad and I were throwing around were EB Green's and Salvatore's, so that price range or a bit lower is what I'd be looking for.

We'll probably have around 18 people, so the restaurant would also need to be able to accommodate a larger group.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts or recommendations!

So, very delayed reaction on my part I know, I'm sorry. Just wanted to give an update though, we ended up choosing Sunset Cove in Tarrytown on a whim when we couldn't get into Harvest on Hudson or X20 with a large group. I would definitely recommend, the restaurant was extremely accomodating of our large group. While the atmosphere wasn't particularly impressive at first glance and it was kind of a pain to find, the restaurant and back patio were both very nice. The food was excellent, my party had many different dishes, ranging from cod to steak and everyone was happy with their selections. The waitstaff was also really helpful and friendly. Good option in the Tarrytown area!

Hi everyone,

Yes, it turns out we are actually staying at the Renaissance Westchester by Marriott, which is in White Plains...sorry for the confusion. These suggestions all look great, I appreciate the help!

Thanks for the response...the story was helpful for some ideas! Graduation is from Fordham in the Bronx...I'm reluctant to do Arthur Ave for dinner because I think the whole school will be there, so I figured it might just be easier to head back toward the general vicinity of the hotel. As far as price range, I was thinking of a place where entrees would run between 20 and 30 each or so. And if you happen to know of any good places that aren't on the river, that's fine too. Thanks for your help!

Hi everyone,

I'll be graduating from college in about 3 weeks. My family is staying at a Marriott in White Plains, and I was hoping to get some suggestions for a good restaurant for an early dinner for about 10 people following the ceremony. Ideally, I was thinking something American or Italian (the group I'll be with isn't particularly adventurous). Also, do you know of any places along these lines that are located on the river? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
