Healthy restaurants that are good for large groups
I am looking for restaurants that are healthy and good for large groups of about 25-35. Any suggestions ...
I organize a Meet-up group, Culture for Non-Cultured (http://culturecircle.meetup.com/3/), and am tired of going to the usual pub fair after our cultural outings ...
You need to give more specifics.
1. Exactly what do you mean by "healthy"?
2. Do you want a private room?
3. What is your per person budget? And tell us if that figure includes drinks (wine, liquor), tax & tip.
Josie's is a pleasant diner, but I can't imagine it handling a group of 35 - unless there's some private room and catering I don't know about.
As for specifics: I'm getting a little tired of pub food (Harvest Brewery, Half King) and the like. Those have their place, but I'd like something a little healthier. It doesn't necessarily have to be organic or exotic -- just tasty and something that doesn't make my digestive system scream.
We do go to somewhat exotic foods sometimes -- we've had Korean food, probably go for Ethiopian at some point, etc. -- but I like to make that an event in and of itself. When we go to a museum or gallery hopping or see performance art, etc., I like to let that be the event and the food be somewhat un-exotic and comforting and somewhat inexpensive, but a place where we can sit and talk (a tall order, I know) ...
As for location, we do events all over Manhattan (and sometimes outer boroughs) so any and all locations are great and much appreciated.
