trendy nyc restaurant for birthday

my friend is turning 21 and wants to go to a trendy restaurant for his birthday. he wants something with a trendy atmosphere like Tao and preferribly with a private room. Any suggestions other than Buddha Bar, Morimoto or any of the other usuals?

    1. Stanton Social and Otto are my faves for large groups.

      1. thanks. i've been to otto and love it! stanton social sounds like a good place. keep the suggestions coming if you have any others!!

        1. stanton socail is a great place for groups..i'd recommend just getting a bunch of tables in the upstairs loung and ordering drinks and a bunch of appetizers there rather than a formal sit down dinner
