3 Aussie Families need rec for New Years Eve dinner in Manhattan
Is this a big ask? We are 3 Aussie families travelling to NYC this New Year's and need advice on a place for dinner. 6 adults 9 teenagers staying in Midtown and would like a communal French or Italian style dinner. Any advice greatly appreciated!
More experienced eaters-out-on-holidays will have to give opinions about the practicality of a reservation for 15 seated dinner New Year's eve. I think lots of places have a set dinner that night. My ?s - price point (Tax, tip= about 25-30%), how far you'll travel (midtown congestion w/ Times Square celebration).
Sambuca- family style italian, on the UWS. away from the insanity
20 West 72nd Street, New York, NY 10023
Strong second for rkaene's suggestion for Sambuca, with a back-up of Carmines, UWS, not Times Sq, for the reason Kathryn noted: TS is an absolute mad house on NYE, and both the restaurants are within a block of the subway--easily the best way to get around on NYE. www.sambucanyc.com and www.carminesnyc.com Please report back on what you decide and how it works out. Oh, and a very preliminary HNY!
