We're hosting our daughte'rs wedding next spring, 2008. We need a restaurant space to host 75 people in a private room, preferably downtown Manhattan. Any suggestions?

  1. The Stanton Social...super fun and cool hip dwntwn location! My bfriend was a cook there before we moved to SF! Nice joint

    1. great suggestion (just looked it up). was it "affordable" (nyc standards, i mean). And how is service and attitude?

      1. so sorry I haven't been on chowhound for awhile and I just read your reply.
        the service is prety good, cute fun and young waiters...the hostess are nice for nyc.

        1. You might get some other replies if you provided additional specifics like cuisine preferences, type of ambiance (casual vs. fancy), and per person budget. It would also help if you told us if that budget figure includes alcoholic beverages, tax (nearly 9%) & tip (20%).

            I've been in touch with Stanton Social. It's probably too small, and our rehearsal dinner would be on a Saturday night, which is problematic, since they have quite a scene of their own going. But thanks for the suggestion.

          2. what day are you looking for? what part of downtown?

              April, 2008, a Saturday night. Tribeca or Soho are preferred locations for the rehearsal dinner. We'll have a block of rooms at the Millenium Hilton, the Ritz, maybe the Soho Grand. Walking distance or short cab from those hotels.
