Hi there! I am looking for a place within walking distance from Madison and 44th, to accommodate 15-20 people (without prix fix) for dinner, late - maybe around 10 or 10:30 on Tuesday April 17. Any thoughts? Ideas on how to go about finding a place? Thank you.

    How about Zengo (3rd Ave & 40th)...? Latin-Asian cuisine & large spaces... Site says they're open til closing, whatever that means.....

        There a few Irish Bar/Restaurants in the area, Connolly's, Maggie's Place, not gourmet, but since you are going late, not sure what you are really looking for.

        Tough call. Most restaurants are going to insist on a prix-fixe / set menu (with maybe one or two choices per course) for a group that large. How much do you want to spend per person? Just for food, that is - leave aside tax/tip/drinks for the time being - that makes a HUGE difference, and we could rule out a number of places right off the bat that might be over your limit.

        Also, you'd need to settle the number in your party soon - that's right on the cusp of where a restaurant could possibly seat you in their main dining room or you'd have to reserve a private room.

          You might try Pera. Don't know how late they are open. We did a group of about 17 and they gave us a separate room We did prix fix, but i think they might let you pick you own food. Certainly convenient.
