rehearsal dinner

I need an informal, fun, very NYC place to entertain 12 out of town guests. We are having a serious $$ meal the night before so I am looking for a casual/ethnic spot...maybe Indian or Turkish..and inexpensive. Sharing platters would work nicely.

It can't be Japanese or Chinese. A private room would be nice too. Any thoughts out there?

  1. I would recommend DhaBa, on Lex, b/t 27th & 28th ("Curry Hill"). Delicious Indian food. Casual setting. Reasonable prices. No private room, but they can accommodate a group of 12.

    1. Beyoglu, Upper East Side -- inexpensive Turkish/Med fare, prettier if you sit downstairs, but more private upstairs.
