hot, trendy restaurant with private room for 40

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.

    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!

      DBGB is hot ,, food is ok too. 40 people takes a big pvt room City Winery can handle over 100 people ,,, Tribeca Cinemas (owned by Robt. Dinero)was trendy enough for Mario Batali , Madonna, and many more. Tribeca Grill ( maybe past its prime but still trnndy has rooms for private parties. OH , the bar on St level by the Gaansvoort hotel ,i forget the name ,,you can get a cabana for the nite ,, they serve sushi and more ,,very hot and trendy, very very

        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.
