Westchester/Fairfield County - Dinner for 10?

Looking for good food, good atmosphere, within walking distance of other bars, for a group of 10. Moderately priced and any type of cuisine, doesn't matter.
We're looking for a restaurant where we could possibly have our own space or at least a more private corner of the dining room.
Any suggestions in Westchester or Fairfield Counties?
If I need to be more specific about what we're looking for, just let me know!
Thanks for any help in advance.

  1. The walking distance makes it tough. In Fairfield county, Greenwich is an obvious choice because of Greenwich Ave and all the nearby spots. You can try Barcelona for drinks/tapas style dinner or one of the Japanese hibachi style places. Budget? Cuisine? I can help if you tell me more.

    1. For moderate prices, good selection and walking to bars, the "T" in stamford seems right. It is lower Summer ST, starts at the Marriott Courtyard, past the movie theatres and then has all the bars at the perpendicular intersection.

      Very Top End restaurants to fun and livelies.

        1. Telluride in Stamford is a good choice, though possibly more expensive than what you're looking for. They have a large, round table off the end of the bar that might suit your needs.

          1. South Norwalk is also an obvious answer, dinner for 10 at either Barcelona, Kazu, or Strada would be very reasonable and you'd be right there in the midst of the nightlife.

              have done barcelona numerous times and is great. Strada 18 does not take reservations and would be a nightmare waiting for a table this size. Been there, done that. not pleasant

                I would definitely go with Bacchus in South Norwalk. Best food in SoNo. Great wine. Great atmosphere and no problem accommodating 10 people.

                  I was just at Bacchus with a group of 6 and the food was average at best. I would not recommend it. The service was great but the food was not at all well prepared. Barcelona is a better choice.

                  1. re: ctfood

                    That's very interesting. I ate at Barcelona a couple months ago and it was one of the worst, oversalted meals I've had in a long time. I'm surprised you didn't enjoy Bacchus.

                  Really, even for 10 people they wont take a ressie??

                  1. re: amanda3571

                    you can try. they wouldn't for jfood a few months ago. And there is a problem with where a 10-top would be situated in the space. pretty tough space for 10. Osetra has that nice farmers table in the back that sits 12 though.

                    1. re: jfood

                      I have friends who work there, I'll have to ask them. If they don't take reservations for large parties - that's absurd.
