Work dinner for 15 - midtown, downtown

ultbil Aug 4, 2008 03:17 PM

Anyone have some ideas in midtown or downtown for a nice place for dinner that can accomodate 15 people that won't be tight...we'll be moving around and switching seats...splitting into 2 or 3 tables is ok.

Cuisine is flexible - Italian, Asian, American, S. American, French, Greek, Asian (not sushi)...

Steering away from sushi or the not-so-ordinary (i.e. Tahitian, Ukrainian...).

Looking to keep it around $50-$75 pp.

Thinking about Bann in midtown, may Blue Ribbon Bakery (downstairs).

    Trattoria Trecolori, on 47th St., b/t B'way & 8th Av., serves delicious homestyle Italian fare. The restaurant is large with well-spaced tables. They could probably accommodate you at one long table if that is your preference. Service is excellent though I guess you'd have to explain to them what that switching business is all about. Prices fit your budget.

      You'll have to inquire about prices, but places where I've attended large group dinners:

      Red Eye Grill (upstairs)
      Del Frisco's (esp. the Wine Vault, but there's also space upstairs)
      Jane (downstairs)
      Bar Americain (upstairs)
      Anthos (upstairs ... but be forewarned: the upstairs space is hideous)

      I really love the food at Blue Ribbon Bakery. If you can work the space and price, I'd take it above any of my suggestions.
