  • 8

I'm looking for a hot, trendy, up-and-coming restaurant anywhere in Manhattan with a private room that holds 40 people. Price is not an issue.

  1. Buddakan can handle 40.
    Tribeca Cinema and Events can do 40 people , choose your menu , big bar can even have a movie screened ,,, lots of celebs have their parites there.
    Tribeca Grill has private rooms that can hold 40
    City Winery has severalrooms that can accomodate you

    1. The Modern has a great private room that overlooks the museum garden


      1. Oceana just reopened in midtown, they have a neat opaque curtain that draws and separates parties. Great menu too. Also landmark int he columbus circle had a ncie sized room for pe's

        1. Eleven Madison Park has two rooms for 18 and 32; they can be combined for 50. You can't get trendier than EMP.

            You can't? You mean, just because they just got their 4th NYT star, or for some other reason? I ask because it doesn't seem to define "trendy" in a social sense to me. That word tends to make me think of places in the Meat-Packing District that attract lots of young women in high heels and scanty outfits or places that recently opened and are very popular, especially with the younger set.

          2. Thanks for all of the suggestions!

            1. There's a private back room at the recently opened and SUPER hot spot DBGB. I think the ones above are a little past their prime.

              Good luck!
