Private dining Sunday afternoon, post-funeral. Midtown, UES...recs?
About 30 of us will be descending on NYC for a funeral, and we are looking for a recommendation for an afternoon spot for the post-funeral meal.
Our normal family event restaurant, Levana (upscale kosher with private dining), is no longer a storefront. Relatives looked at the Penn club (upscale private dining), but they are closed on Sunday afternoon.
Any suggestions? Midtown is good, can do UES/UWS as well. It doesn't need to be Glatt kosher, just a nice american restaurant with a private room that can accommodate 30 or so on pretty short notice.
Any and all help much appreciated, as always. Thanks!
For "American" cuisine, I would suggest checking out the following:
David Burke, on 62nd, b/t Park & Lex.
Park Avenue Spring (Summer, Fall, Winter), on 63rd & Park,.
If you are willing to consider contemporary French cuisine with international elements, I highly recommend Cafe Boulud, on 76th, b/t 5th & Madison. The food is superb, and their private space can accommodate 30+.
