Best Place to Throw 50th Bday Party with VIEW

RawTunaFan Jan 31, 2007 03:15 PM

Hey Chowhounds!

I am throwing a 50th birthday party for my business partner and am looking for a spectacular place with spectacular food and an amazing view. Preferably in the midtown area but willing to look elsewhere.

Right now we are looking at Astra, the Charlie Palmer spot in the D & D building, and the place seems out of this world. The view is perfect but before we put our deposit down, just wanted to see if we are missing out on somewhere else great. Money is no object, they are charging us $200 a head, but we just want to be sure that there is no better place than this!

We have about 60 guests and its on a Saturday night, so booking a restaurant may be tough, so an open space with caterers or somewhere i can hire a caterer would be great!

Thanks in advance!

    It's not Manhatten but ALma's in Brooklyn has the most amazing roof space, great mexican food, I mean great and nice staff. WOrth a look. 360 view just off Red Hook.

        Couldn't thank you enough for mentioning this place! Went there, had a tasting and simply loved it. The view, the decor, everything. My assistant will be sending them their deposit shortly!

        Thanks to everyone else as well!

        Take Care
