Recommendations for private dining for 80 - 100

I am looking for recommendations for restaurants seating 80 - 100 that one could take out for a private reception. I want an intimate setting (i.e. not Canoe or Centro), and great quality food.

One option we are entertaining is Giancarlo on Clinton, but their maximum guest count is 80 and that requires use of both rooms, so it's not ideal. Scaramouche is another option, and perfect in terms of size, however they will only close the restaurant for private use on a Sunday, so again not ideal.

Any assistance is very much appreciated. Thanks!

  1. what night of the week do you want? and it sounds as if 'buying' the night and price are no object?

      Saturday night, and buying the night will therefore be required no doubt. We'd rather not bankrupt ourselves, but price is not the chief concern.

    2. One of the rooms at George can hold 100 people for a sit-down event but I'm not sure I would call George intimate in terms of the feel of the room but the food is top notch.

      You could likely buyout Mistura for that number of people as I know their private room is far too small. I find that Mistura is very warm and intimate in terms of feel and the food always above average.

      Malena will do a buyout for sure but I'm not 100 percent they would do it for a Sat night but it is worth looking into. I believe their seated cap is around 90 or 100 ppl.

      1. Saturday might be a tough night to book out an entire restaurant, but you may want to inquire w/ Splendido as well.

          Splendido can't do 100 at once for a seated meal so I didn't think that would work. I believe their max at once is closer to 60.

          And it is always possible, just depends on how much you're willing to spend. On a Sat for a highend resto it can be as high as $30,000.
