Holiday Dinner Good for Loud Fun Group?

I am looking for NYC reccomendation for a small company holiday party. It's a fun group, mostly blue collar men who like Latin/Mexican or Italian. Last year it was El Parador Cafe in Midtown and it was well received. I thought Suenos or Agozar ... any other ideas?

El Parador
325 East 34th Street, New York, NY 10016

311 West 17th Street, New York, NY 10011

324 Bowery, New York, NY 10012

      I thought maybe Hill Country?? Should be a fun night
      Dinner should be mid-December

        Hill Country would certainly be good for a fun-loving, loud group, what with the live country music and all. However, they don';t take reservations though that may not be the policy for large parties, so you should call to check.

        For Mexican, we like Toloache. We've been to the midtown location on 50th St., b/t B'way & 8th and more recently to the new UES 82nd St. branch. The midtown location can easily accommodate a group your size, and they accept reservations.
