  1. You might want to check at a hotel in that area. You could also try the Princeton or Harvard Clubs if you have some type of "in". Sorry, but that's such a big group that I'm not sure what to suggest on such notice. Hopefully, there are better informed diners out there!

    2. would you want indian food? pongal in murray hill does a great buffet brunch. i'm not sure about the logistics of renting out the place, though.

      1. Turkish Kitchen has a Sunday buffet brunch for $17.95pp (drinks, tax & tip not included). Though I've had lunch and dinner there countless times, I've never done the brunch because I don't like buffets. However, Hounds who have tried it say it's excellent. No surprise, really, because TK's food is always well-prepared and delicious. The restaurant is on two levels, so they should have no problem accommodating a crowd of your size, and their website indicates that they do private parties. The brunch menu is there as well.

        Cibo is on the corner of 2nd Av. & 41st St. Their food is very good, and the space is large enough to accommodate a big party. Normally, their brunch is table service ($17.95 prix-fixe). However, since they do private functions, they might be willing to do a buffet for you. Whether the cost would remain within your budget is the question.
