Private room dining for retirement party??
Hey all, newbie at posting but frequent chowhound reader and looking for some help! Our boss is retiring and we're looking for restaurants that have a private room (for 22 people) we can book for lunch. The two options we've come up with are Jamie Kennedy Gardiner and Hart House at University of Toronto. Though Jamie might be too expensive? Downtown Toronto locations only and preferably within 15-20 minutes walking distance from Bay/College or a short TTC ride. HELP.
JK Wine Bar and George both have private rooms and can be highly recommended. Not cheap. Also, for 22 people at lunch time you could consider picking a small resto eg. < 40 seats and seeing if they would close for a private lunch. It may be worth their while if not likely to be a busy day otherwise.
i have booked the private room at BeerBistro (King/Yonge) for my engagement party. the staff have been really helpful and the menus look great. we're doing appetizers/cocktail party, but they have full meals and other choices availible. the room booking was no additional charge despite the fact that we have it for Sat night, and the minimum spending is $500, quite reasonable by downtown standards. good luck with your hunt!

Thanks for all the advice... I'm making it a point to look into each and every one of those suggestions. I also thought of Bistro 990 simply because it's within walking distance and I just noticed they have a private room/area; not sure as I've only dined on their main floor.
