Help - need to plan a cocktail reception for 50 - 60

Help! I have to plan an important cocktail reception celebrating the signing of new contract. There will be top executives from both companies - about 50-60 in all. We are looking to do a cocktail party with passed hors d'oeuvres. Last contract we did it at a very nice bar/lounge that had a private room. Location not much of an issue as long as it is in Manhattan and has a private space, but the atmosphere is the key. Also, it can' t break the bank. Since I don't live in Manhattan I really need help with this one! Thanks!

      I was told to check out some places and then they will figure out the budget!

      There's a private room at Aureole on 42nd which might work depending on budget.

        Landmarc at the Time Warner Center has 2 rooms- and fabulous passed hors' douevres. I've done 2 events there- one for 30 and one for 60 and they both worked well. If you want you can combine the 2 rooms into one. Everything passed- hot and cold- was totally delicious.
