    thanks everybody!!!! i wanted to do big pig gig--but people here were squeemish about that idea (which i find hilarious as the only woman in the group), and i think otto might not be macho enough (i love it and am going this weekend) and then virgils was my next call but they were full up too. so dinosaur. I am very excited, as i think it has just the atmosphere the suburban suits i work with will enjoy. so thanks for coming to my rescue!!!

      I highly suggest Gyu-Kaku, Japanesse BBQ which is really tasty and fun as you cook your own food. I have been to the location dt which has a huge table which would def fit 15, they opened another location in mt @ 49th which, I have not been to. The website is gyu-kaku.com. they also, have a huge sake menu .

        R.U.B. might be able to handle 15, although its a bit down-market from Blue Smoke. Even a place like Virgil's in Times Square is actually kinda good, although nowhere near "authentic" and the same kinda down-market-ness. Maybe try Hallo Berlin for a beer-hall-ish, big meat kinda place.
