I'd still recommend Anthony's Pier 4 for a somewhat more 'New England' atmosphere, and a broader menu.... and the dining rooms aren't that noisy. The place might be a cliche for the locals, but for 'New Yawkers', it will feel a bit more like they're really in Boston.
As for your daughter: tell her the celebration is really for the family... and slip her $100 so she can go to the Barking Crab with her friends, insterad of grandma.
