Chelsea: fun dinner for 25?
My wife is an artist who has an upcoming gallery opening in Chelsea, near 10th Ave and 25th. At her last opening, we squeezed 25 people around a cramped Italian restaurant nearby. Very fun but not so delicious.
For the next opening, we're looking for someplace within walking distance that might have a private space or at least a semi private area for a decently large group. Delicious, fun, casual and lively are the criteria. Any cuisine is fine.
Any Chowhound suggestions? Thanks very much.
