Need Asian restaurant for 30 visiting Japanese executives

I have to book an Asian restaurant that has either a private room or we can take over a section of the restaurant for 30-40 Japanese executives that would do a set menu under $80 and hopefully that includes a drink or two.

Within 5 minutes cab ride from Union Square would be great. Doesn't have to be ChinaTown. We used Bong Su in the past -something along those lines would be great.

      Yes, up to $80 per person if that includes some fairly average wine or a drink or two.

        check out the R & G website, they have some banquet menus posted.

            We did that one 3 years ago. It was too hard to break down the crabs with everybody in suits and people being so formal with good manners (Japanese), so most people left the crabs and were hungry afterwards.

    2. is there a reason why it must be Asian?

        The overseas executives have requested it as basic familiarity is important to them.

      2. Possibilities:
        -- Shanghai 1930
        -- Nihon Whiskey Lounge? you should call and see if they can accomodate, I think they sometimes close for private parties on Sunday and/or Monday.
        -- Seoul Garden
        -- ?? Empress of China ?? (I stopped in here for a drink last week, I have no idea how the foo d is, but the drink was great, the place is very old school, full of pics from people taken in the 1970s...)

            Oh no.
            This is sad.

            But not as sad as the day they closed Kiku of Tokyo -- that was a favorite of mine, and would also have been perfect for this dinner...

        1. Would Slanted Door work? They have rooms off to the side, but I don't know the actual capacity.

            Slanted Door's private room seats only 20.
