BIG private room or rental of ENTIRE restaurant ???

  • t
  • 8

I've seen similar questions before, but never for this many people.

I'm looking for a space for a rehearsal dinner for 50 people. Only real requirements are good food, warm atmosphere, and it has to be able to seat 50+ people.

We're amenable to either a big private room or, alternately, renting out an entire restaurant.

I've done lots of research, but I'm looking for those little gems that I might have missed.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    1. About eight years ago, we rented Montrachet (the whole restaurant) for our daughter's rehearsal dinner. We seated more than 50. It was expensive, but worth it.

      1. I know that Frontiere, on Prince St. in Soho, rents out the place for private parties. This would be my choice -- not pretentious; great food; a small and friendly atmosphere. I would give them a call.

        1. Full Disclosure: I work for Danny Meyer.

          Eleven Madison Park (Madison and 24th st) has a private dining room that seats 50. The food is American with French influence, and the PDR has a nice view of Madison Square Park/Flatiron.

          1. I don't know if it would serve your needs, but many people rent out big Chinatown eating halls like Harmony Palace for this purpose.
