Recs for Private Dining Room - 25 people in Midtown

heWho Jul 20, 2010 07:02 AM

Looking for new suggestions for restaurants with a private dining room that can hold 25 people, in Midtown, with good food, but not TOO uptight. We've held these dinners at Red Eye in the past and are looking for a change of pace. Something along those lines would be good... maybe with food that's a bit better/more interesting.

Right now we're thinking maybe Churrascaria Plataforma, but we're completely open to suggestions. I've got a pretty good lay of the land regarding restaurants around town, but I don't have a clue who has private dining rooms. Any suggestions appreciated!

    Patroon / 46 btw 3rd & Lex.
    That might be too far east for you (RedEye is down from Carnegie Hall on Seventh, yes?) but it could fit your bill.
    Remember Yogi Berra's dictum, though, meaning that looking for a private dining room on a public space is inherently contradictory.

      Thanks for the suggestion on Patroon. That's actually much more convenient for us, our office is near Grand Central.

      Red Eye has actually got a good setup for private dining rooms. They can squeeze in two of them or create one really large room. Both configurations have a private bar area. Unfortunately the food is pretty boring.

      Anyone else have any suggestions? c'mon!
