Interesting Options for Group Dining?
I am looking for ideas on creative prix fixe group dining. For example, at momfuku ssam bar, you can order the bo ssam prix fixe in advance for a group (basically a 6-course meal, including a whole pork butt). My group has already done this - but I am looking for an interesting alternative where you can order a specialty in advance and are able to share as a group. Ideas?
Don't forget the Beef 7 Ways at Ma Peche
Or the fried chicken dinner at Momofuku Noodle Bar
Alta has The Whole Shebang. Everything on the menu for $420. I don't think they have a minimum group size.
The Breslin offers a suckling pig dinner or a whole lamb dinner at the "chef's table" for a group. It's the only time they take reservations. 8 people minimum, though.
Resto similarly offers a large format feast for a group. They recommend at least 8 people. Not sure if there's a minimum.
Daisy May's Big Pig Gig is also an option: half pig, whole pig, whole pork butt, or rack of lamb. I went recently, though, and service sucked. It took forever to get drinks (just beer and bottled beer) and even just tap water for the table. It's only $35 per person and I would have gladly paid more if the freaking server had actually paid attention to our requests for water.
Back Forty does a number of different "Feasts" for large groups: crab, burgers, suckling pig, vegetarian, or a tasting menu. The burger one seems pretty reasonable. $35 for a three course meal.
DBGB also offers a suckling pig dinner
According to AMNY these restaurants also offer a whole suckling pig dinner:
