Where should I have a great group dinner/party?

I am graduating this June and will need to host about 15-20 of my very foodie relatives. I want to go somewhere fun and also delicious... some ideas I had were renting out a japanese karaoke place (but with delicious food? great food is a requirement and might be a bit hard here) or a russian restaurant. I love ethnic food, but don't require it, and I want an atmosphere conducive to talking and having fun... Any ideas? New and cool places are also always great. Thanks!

  1. What's your budget? While I'm at it I'm going to throw this out there (which most people will then accuse me of being a one note song but oh well).

    The new restaurant(s) at The NoMad do something I feel is rather unique, they offer tasting menu served family style. The food is from the same team that brings us EMP and I can attest it's wonderful. It is not inexpensive by any means. If you could cut your party down to 14 they could probably even accommodate you and you could have the fireplace room all to yourselves.

      I'm looking into the NoMad, but it seems a bit expensive... I don't really want to spend more than about $70 pp if I can avoid it (including drinks), though, I'd go a little higher... basically, somewhere with $20-35 entrees would be ideal
