Looking for Good Restaurant for Start of Bachelor Party.

I'm the best man, so I'm throwing the bachelor party for my 29 y/o friend and about 8 other guys in their late 20's/early 30's and I'm looking for a good spot in manhattan to accomodate us. I want to go with something upscale, but not "Per Se" expensive, that can accomodate a group. I thought about Kobe Club or Quality Meats, but I'm yet to be sold on either. Does anyone else have any good ideas in that range? I appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

  1. Craftsteak or Wolfgang's might be a good bet, if you're looking for a good steakhouse atmosphere. If you're looking more casual, Hill Country could be fun.

    If you don't care about the quality of the food, the Hawaiian Tropic Zone in Times Square. :P

    1. Robert's steakhouse serves great steak in the perfect upscale bachelor party environment. (Translation: High end steakhouse at a strip club).

      That said, I've hosted two bachelor parties that both started at Wolfgangs, everyone was very pleased. I wouldn't recommend Kobe Club.

        Thanks. I probably want to separate the those two activities. I'll take a look at Wolfgang's and cross Kobe off the list. If you think of anything else, let me know.

      2. BLT, Del Friscos, Park Ave Summer (back room)

        1. Check out Beacon at 25 West 56th Street. Their specialty is wood-roasted meats and fish. The atmosphere is moderately "clubby," but it's warm and comfortable, and the food is excellent, from steaks to the smoked trout. They're amenable to smallish "large groups" and no one seems put off if you have a "party atmosphere" at your table.

          1. Churascarria platforma.. great for a bachelor party type group!

              Thanks Michael! I thought of Churascaria since it's good for groups, but I think I want something a little more upscale.
