Wine room/private room

Tom G. Feb 12, 1999 12:41 PM

Looking for a restaurant with a special private room
for my father's 60th birthday party...What I envision
is a wine cellar/wine room...I know Picholine and "21"
have them, but they're booked...
And I think Il Buco is a little too downtown for the
uptown crowd of fewer than 10 people who will be
joining us...
If you have any suggestions, please (if you would be so
kind) email me directly as I might not be checking this
board every day (and I've only got about a
week-and-a-half to deal with this)...

    City Wine & Cigar has a nice little room. Fits @ 12
    people, all glass walls looking on to the Kitchen.
    Only problem is that the food is not consistant.

      I think Picholine's wine room is limited to 6 possibly
      7 but not 10. Have you thought about the kitchen room
      at Park Ave Cafe? Reservations may still be avail if
      you're not trying for a Sat night. It's a glassed in
      room adjacent to the kitchen. Didn't know if you
      wanted truly private or just not in the main dining

        Gramercy Tavern has a nice private room.
        Redeye Grill has a private room upstairs which
        overlooks the place. This is a funky place with a real
        eclectic menu.
        Frank's Steakhouse has a glass enclosed area in the
        dining room which is really a cigar room.
        All 3 would be fun.
        Regards, JK

          We ended up at Felidia and it was wonderful...
          If anybody is ever looking for a private room for 12
          people (and somebody else is paying the LARGE bill),
          this is a great place.
          It's on the second floor in it's own private area. One
          wall is a huge plate glass window overlooking the
          street below.
          Your own private waiter and busboy. Great service and
          the traditionally solid and delicious Felidia food.
