  1. Any particular cuisine preference? Also, since people's opinion of what "without being exhorbitant" means, it would be helpful to have a per person budget and tell us if that figure includes alcoholic beverages, tax and tip.

      Cuisine: Italian, French, American. Per person: trying to keep it within $150 pp range, all included.

        For some reason, all of the places that are coming to mind involve stairs, which may be a problem for the elderly in your party, but here goes:

        Il Buco has a CHARMING private cellar. I think it holds about 30. Olive's has a private room upstairs, or so I've heard, but I've never actually seen it. Devi has a separate upstairs that you may be able to take over but I don't know if you'd be willing to consider Indian.

      mighty fancy, should meet your price point.
