trendy nyc restaurant for birthday

  • 7

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

          1. A few years ago I organized a 21st birthday party dinner for my then girlfriend. There was no private room but they set us (18 people I think) at a few tables all together. They were great, the chef came out and asked how everything was going and said happy birthday to the birthday girl and they made her a special dessert. I organized it fairly far in advance, but she loved it...
