Private Party for 12-15, Low Key, Downtown?

  • a

Hi,

I am looking for a good place for my husband's 40th bday. Around 12-15 people, preferably east village/village/soho/lower east side areas. Ideally moderate price, great food, good wine list and low key/relaxed. Favorite foods are mediterranean, turkish, lebanese, tapas.

Any help greatly appreciated!

  1. What is your idea of "moderately priced?" Thanks.

    1. A few places to investigage:

      Pylos - Greek - http://www.pylosrestaurant.com

      'inoteca - Italian (small plates) - http://www.inotecanyc.com

      If you're willing to BYO, Limon is a Turkish restaurant . The space is teensy (about 15 seats), so you could take over the entire restaurant.

        These are great suggestions, thanks.

          I am thinking no more than $20-$25 for entrees

        2. Alta, Otto, Freemans, 'inoteca, Jane, The Smith, Blue Ribbon Bakery, Stanton Social (although this can get more and more expensive as the night goes on)...Oh, there is a new Boqueria branch downtown. I know the Flatiron one takes reservations for big groups, not sure about the Soho/Nolita one.

          1. Supper (LES). Very reasonably priced and you could get the back room for your party ...

              The back room at Supper is perfect for this. It's completely private and the walk through the wine storage room is cool. I like the food there too, at least when compared with other EV Italian options.

            2. Consider mostly-private dining at Bacaro. It's awesome.

                We just went to Bacaro recently and the food (new menu) was good not great. You can't beat the private rooms and atmosphere, value pricing though.
