Virginia BEach restaurants

I have a friend moving near the Dam Neck, Virginia area, and I want to get a gift certificate to a great restaurant where he can take some of his friends. Maybe $150-$200 for drinks and dinner. Probably should include great local seafood! Top 3 favorites would be great.

Good Eats near Winston-Salem

Add El Maguey out in Old Town for genuine Mexican fare ,excellent ceviche tostadas, with great service. Also for the real deal go to El SOmrero on University Parkway. Noble's was formerly a great fine dining experience however has slipped.

Birthday suggestions needed.Daughter turning 21 june21.looking for somewhere really fun,happy hour so as not to break the bank &toast her and her 30 friends before dinner

Many thanks to all of you who responded adn did so with patience adn understanding that NY is not my territory. WE had my daughter's 21st irthday party at Frying Pan Bar below CHelsea Piers and it was perfect. WE ordered many tubs f Corona on ice 6/$35 which was what they wanted most on a very ot evening. You sit on a pier or on the boat itslef which was a former tug boat that sunk after misuse about 10 years ago. The food was great including fajitas, sandwiches adn the wait staff was great. Gorgeous views of trhe Hudson

Road to Marakesh (Morocco) in March

Le Tobisil for fabulous blow out dinner in Marakesh. Owner/manager/host is an unfriendly arrogant woman yet despite her arrogance the restaurant is tops on every front. Very expensive($500 for 5) however if you order wine or whatever beverage it is included. WE did not know that so were very conservative and only got a few beers.
Got some amazing carpets and paid triple in Fez and Marakesh to what I paid on road to Esourara where same were available with much less pressure and truly exact same tribe's work...

I am co-hosting a dinner for 25 graduates(not 21)from Prep school and parents in Princeton New Jersey. I need to know the name of somewhere special that won't totally break the bank. How about a budget of $50-$75 per person without liquor and wine?
