NYC C'hounder group dinner during jazz fest

  • 3

I'm headed to one of my favorite foodie cities for jazz fest and am looking for some ideas on where to do one large group dinner (12+ people?) and one dinner for 6-8 people. I realize it's hard to get a table for a large group, especially during jazz fest, but was wondering if there are any new options that i should check out. Some favorites i was considering are Lemeac and L'express because one of the dinners will be taking place after 11pm. Another option i considered for the group of 6 people was Pied du Cochon. I've been to both Lemeac and L'express and have heard mixed reviews of Pied du Cochon....so basically i'll defer to local experts for better/different suggestions. Thanks!

  1. Try Restaurant Ariel on Drummond they have a nice side room that can accomodate a 12 plus group.During the Jazz Fest they have live jazz in house.I have been their with a large group and was amazed with the exactness and balance of their service. It has a small menu and a great wine cellar.

    1. Hmm, sounds like a request from a road manager for hungry jazz musicians. When all else fails you can always head to Chinatown to Maison VIP on Clark for late night lobster, very easy with a big group. And I am not sure what the mixed reviews are of APdC but I personally think it's a great choice.

      1. Come join the WBGO team! We are still formulating where we will be going- we are coming up in two groups. We tend to do a lot of the late concerts so we do our main meals for lunch. Forget dinner!
