PHX: Any recs for private rooms or tasting menus?
We have 8 people for a company Christmas party and I'm looking for some private room or tasting menu ideas. Place shouldn't be too stuffy, we're all in our 20s and early 30s. I saw a rec for Lon's wine cave and that looks perfect but I thought I'd see what else was out there. We typically do Drinkwater's but I wasn't happy with the service last year. Budget roughly $150/person.
Both T. Cook's and Tarbell's have small private rooms suitable for a party of this size. T. Cook's usually has a tasting menu; Tarbell's tend to be a la carte, but could probably create a tasting menu for you.

Kazimerz Wine Bar will do a dinner in the back room with wine flights and food from Cowboy Ciao. Great ambience and you can time it for when the jazz is playing in the main lounge. Very cool.
I also like the private room at Richardson's on the Dick's Hideaway side. Used to $500 to hold the room all of which goes toward the food and bar.
