Need suggestions for private dining - party of 12 - 30th birthday

I need a suggestion for a private dining space, for party of 12 -- for a 30th birthday party.
I had originally planned Palma, in the carriage house. but now they are going to be doing construction,so it won't work.
Would love Italian and/or wine cellar.
Any suggestions?
I have already looked into Il Buco, SD26.


Il Buco
47 Bond St., New York, NY 10012

  1. DBGB has spectacular food - and fantastic service. The private dining is off the kitchen, and very high class.

    Tia Pol is also great - but you may share the room with one other large party.

      For the record, I've enjoyed the couple of meals I've had to date at DBGB, but really, "spectacular" food?? What have you ordered there? I've found it to be good to very good food at fair prices and a pleasant experience, but not spectacular; I'd reserve that word for truly extraordinary meals. Though I will say some of the things I've tried there were pretty impressive; I recall a very good duck dish quite worthy of an excellent high-end restaurant. On the other hand, I wouldn't order an ice cream sundae there again.

      I did have a very good dinner at Tia Pol; my brother and I sat at the bar.

    2. I had a private party for 12 for a 30th birthday party at Supper. We were in a private room on the main floor, and it was really nice! It was a set family style menu, but they let me make comparable changes based on our preferences. Overall, a really nice and great experience.

        Yeah, the downstairs area is very comfortable, and their food is dependably good, made with good, fresh ingredients.
