Chinese resturant for 50th BDay
I am turning 50 and have @ 60+ coming from all over to Manhattan to celebrate.
I need atmosphere/great food/ private room/not in Flushing (too many out of towners) and
Can be funky but no hole in the wall.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Wu Liang Ee in midtown is REAL chinese food (but approachable for even teh squeamish) and for large groups Mr. K's on Lexington - also has great food.

You should talk with them and see if you can work a banquet menu.
They are inexpensive for a midtown location.
Harmony Palace went through renovation not too long ago. I haven't eaten the food there lately. I had banquets there a long time ago but didn't find the food to be good, but that was a long time ago and things could of changed.
Peking Park on 40th and Park, right by Grand Central. Had my wedding banquet there. You can get the full lobster, shrimp, fish, peking duck, appetizer plattter, etc. for $550/table + 15% service, which is on par with the Jing Fong and Harmony Palace. There are also a couple of less banquets.
The space is very nicely decorated, and they have a lot of sliding panels and walls so they configure a room based on the numner of tables that you will have. It ends to be quiet at night also.
