We are a group of 5 looking for somewhere to celebrate a 40th birthday on a Monday evening in May. Looking for a lively restaurant with a bit of atmosphere where we can either have drinks before/afterwards, or somewhere within walking distance of some nice bars.
Food type - Italian, Spanish, Mexican, American. Budget not too excessive, we aren't looking for Michelin stars, but do enjoy good food. Location - happy to get in a cab, but staying in midtown.
Many thanks in advance! X
