Christmas Party Lunch for 8- Where to go?
Is that $40-$50pp for food only? Or must it cover beverages (including alcoholic), nearly 9% tax, and 20% tip (which the restaurant will automatically apply with a party your size)?
We've done the lunch prix-fixe at Ciano, and it was delicious. A real steal for cuisine of such high quality. However, I wouldn't describe the vibe as "fun."
I think the following fit the moderately-priced and "fun" category: Birreria at Eataly, ABC Kitchen, The Dutch, and Balthazar.
