Large Round Tables for 10 other than Chinatown?

Other than Chinatown, need a friends farewell dinner in a restaurant that can handle a group of 10 around a round (or large square) table. Open to all cuisines (except Chinese) /locations (but someplace yummy, pls).

  1. Do you like Turkish? I believe Ali Baba (212 East 34th Street) has a couple of large round tables. Food's great too.

    Or maybe Carmine's? It's not a foodie destination, but solid and good for groups.

      I like the Turkish idea and Carmines is always a safe backup (I supposed Tony D.'s too). Thanks.

        Carmine's? Yuck! I consider them good for nothing. YMMV.

          Carmine's gets a lot of knocks here, but it's really not bad for what it is. The food is as good or better than many Italian restaurants in the city. I mean , there is a lot of really crappy Italian food in this city, and Carmine's is not crappy at all. It is what is is - and in its category, it's fine.

            My last meal at their Upper West Side location a few months ago was really crappy, so I disagree with you. Maybe that was an outlier, but I don't plan to find out.

      2. Otto has a couple of round tables that can fit ten and it's a great place for ordering a lot of small dishes and sharing.

          1. Al Bustan if you like Mediterranean cuisine. They are very good with groups sharing lots of dishes.

            1. Braeburn in the West Village has a large square table in a cozy and rustic private room.

              Public in LES has a large round table in a semi-public room that will seat 10.

              Fabio Piccolo Fiore in midtown East has a semi private room with a large 14-seat table and another semi-private room with a large round table that I recall will seat 10 persons.

              North Square in the Village has a private room that can accomodate 12+.
