Any one have any suggestions for restaurants suitable for throwing a 60th suprise party for about 40 guests sometime this fall? I live in midtown, so I usually focus my searches for this area, but I am open to all suggestions...

    I had a really nice party at Grace in Tribeca http://newyork.citysearch.com/profile...
    Very nice food and stellar drinks. Very comfortable room. Couldn't have been treated better.

      For a 60th in midtown, The Four Seasons in the Seagram Building. Amazing space, reliable food: http://www.fourseasonsrestaurant.com/index2.htm

        I did a surprise party for a group around this size at Blue Water Grill in the Vault Room downstairs. They can even hook up your iPod if you want to create your own playlist for the event.

          COMPASS in west 70s is the spot for a party of this size---a beautiful, jewel-like private room, terrific food, and freebie baked goods to take home for morning breakfast....

          Beacon at 25 West 56th Street has lots of space to hold private events. The food and drinks are stellar. I've been very happy with special events here.

            Try Crispo's in Chelsea.
            Also try Positano's around 47 & 48th & 2nd Ave.

            Nicole's on 60th between 5th and Madison has a fantastic space (where my company hosted our holiday party). Their food and drinks are great.

              That place is incredible - thought they were only open for lunch? I guess not if you rent the whole thing

                Yes, they do special events in the evening...and it's actually pretty reasonable!! Ask for Oscar!
