Private Dining - Financial District/SOMA
I am looking for a restaurant with a private dining room that can accommodate at least 40 guests for a sit-down dinner. This is for a Friday evening in mid-October. The ideal location is in the Financial District or SOMA. I would prefer to be close to The Palace Hotel if possible.
This is for a university alumni event - guests will be of various ages. I would like something that is fun, on the trendy side, but not suited for only the young/hipster crowd. Budget isn't too much of a concern but I don't want/need an extremely high-end restaurant.
I am planning this from Chicago and I am not very familiar with the area. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
TWO's close to the Palace and has a lot of private-dining options.
22 Hawthorne St., San Francisco, CA 94105
I would say Town Hall could accommodate, very San Francisco style place, warm interiors, brick, seasonal foods appealing to most everyone.
Bong Su- has a lovely room, shared dishes, Modern Vietamese, fun spot-
Azie- would be another good choice-fun, semi-hip, accelectic Asian style
Having been in the private upstairs dining room at Town Hall, I'd have to say it's a little small for 40 people. Even though it was December, the room quickly became overheated. Also, the acoustics in that room are horrible, and I could barely hear the person sitting next to me, much less anyone else at my table.
