A great place for my husband's birthday

MRS Jun 4, 2007 02:18 PM

I'd love to do a "fun" birthday evening for my husband's 35th somewhere in the area ( Lower Westchester/ Greenwich area preferred) A few of the places that I've called will not do a reservation for a large group on a weekend night- for example, Q in Port Chester.
Don't want anything stuffy, but I'd still like it to be nice. I was working off 25-20 people as a rough number.
O.K fellow Chowhounds...any ideas? Thanks!

      That would be a beautiful space, but I was thinking of a place that had a little more of a vibe, a little younger...

      Nessa in Portchester, you'll swear you’re in LES. Food is real good; service is knowledgeable, nice atmosphere. Might be hard to get a reservation for such a big group.

        We just had dinner at Belle Havana in Yonkers, right where all the new development is going on...the place was fun, the food was great and the cocktails were fantastic...the mojitos were just as good, if not better, than some of the tastiest I've had in South Beach. If you are looking for fun with a great YOUNG non-Westchester seeming atmosphere, energy and vibe, I would look no further. Crabtree is a very special place, but maybe for a 50th birthday, or even 75th birthday party lol!

          How about FISH in Port Chester? It definitely has a younger vibe than Kittle House, and when I was there, there was a party of about 20 feasting away. Not to mention the food is superb...

            Don't know if it's still good...or even still there...but Bayou in Mount Vernon was fun and the food was good.

                I'm curious, MRS-- what did you decide on?

                  Haven't decided yet. Still thinking...

                20-25 is a problem obviously.

                just some fun places:

                Baang in Greenwich; Barcelona in g'wich or SONO;

                Place jfood has not been but looks fun is zinc in stamford next to movie theater.

                  smokey joe's on the stamford/darien line might be worth considering. real smoke, real bbq. give 'em a call and see what you can work out.
