Rec for dinner for 18 pple - need not be private room

This is for a somewhat informal business dinner on a Tuesday night in May. Last year we did Buddakan, prior year Churascarria (sp?). Both were big hits. Now what? Mix of Brits and Southerners. Don't want to do ribs. Am thinking maybe private room at Aroma, but it seems pretty tame. Thoughts?

  1. Try La Fonda del Sol near Grand Central. They'll set up for you in the main dining room or give you the back area which is private or semi private. Great food, fun, and the raucus atmosphere from the bar area with the tapas menu carries over but doesn't disturb.

    1. Home on Cornelia
      Park - private room / pricey but lots (i mean LOTS) of freebies
      Il Bucco - cellar downstairs

      1. Crispo also has a back room and can do large parties-
