Not pricey but good in Theater District or surrounding

My husband and I have a 8pm play (W. 49th b/w Broadway and 8th) and need a place to eat before. We are going out on Saturday night to IL Mulino so dont want anything too pricey but looking for good food. Any cuisine is okay but prefer not to do Italian (but will if its the best option!). We wont be drinking and don't want more $50 a person.

Chinatown with kids and GOOD food!

So I have through lots of posts about Chinatown but nothing seems to answer my question so I figured I would try to post my own...

I want to take my daughter to Chinatown for her 6th birthday. She LOVES chinese but totally americanized...not super greasy but the good americanized, quality kind. Her favorite dishes are vegetable dumplings, egg rolls, chicken with garlic sauce, sesame chicken and spare ribs. So we will be also going with some family which will include 8 adults and 4 kids (kids range from 6 to 1 yrs old).
We need a little ambiance and a big enough place for our group...

So from what I read it looks likethese are top runners: (OPEN to others!!)
Peking Duck House
NY Noodetown
Mandarian Court
Nice Green Bo (but looks too small and NO ambiance)

I also thought of just walking around Chinatown (want her to have the experience) and walking North to Chinatown Brasserie!

Also make note everyone in the group likes chines but some are not that experimental and might freak out at the real authentic kind of menus..

What do you think? Thanks in advance!

40th bday party

Trying to post this on a few boards in hopes of getting a good response..

I'm hoping you can help! I'm looking plan a 40th birthday party for my husband with 60-70 guests early this summer. I am looking for somewhere in NJ (Essex County pref....or Union, Morris or Bergen)with a private room.. Someone mentioned Diva Lounge in Montclair but I'm afraid the private room is too small.
Want somewhere with good food and a cool atmosphere. Lounge would be great or even a loft space...
Looking to get a DJ and just do drink and heavy appetizers (cocktail party vibe) but I do want the food to be good...This is a crowded of foodies! Any help would be great appreciated.
Thanks!

35th birthday celebration with 9 ladies!

I am celebrating my 35th birthday with 9 girlfriends and I want to celebrate at a trendy and fun NYC restaurant. I was hoping for the meatpacking area but if anyone has other suggestions I'll take them. I want something big (we have a large group), very trendy, and with amazing decor. The food should be good but I am more concerned with the atmosphere. So let me know any good suggestions!

Thanks so much!

Long Beach, NY Eats...

We have a summer house in Long Beach...I know a lot of new restaurants opened recently and I was wondering if anyone could give me any reviews. Our staples are Ginos, Matteos, Nick D'angelos, Coastal Grill and Petes Piteria. Anything else new or old that you love? Also we loved East Bay Diner in Oceanside for breakfast but they closed. Anything else that you can suggest for good eggs, pancakes etc? Thanks!
