German Restaurant for Large Group?
I'm looking for a German restaurant to have an informal memorial/life celebration in the fall for about 60-70 people? Long Island/Queens and NJ are fine as well.
So far I've contacted:
- Zum Stammtisch
- Chalet Alpina
- Helmer's in Hoboken
Does anyone have any experience with the above and/or other recommendations?
I've had experience with Lederhosen. For 70 people, I think they'll have to close down the restaurant, but they may be able to accommodate everyone in the dining room. They have a projector screen that will occupy most of the back wall if you want to show a tribute video. Service is usually buffet style off the menu. I have not seen them do a la carte for private events.
There is a new beer hall opening in brooklyn on st marks and 4th avenue by the owners of der schwarze kölner. im not sure of the name (i dont believe its opened quite yet but should be open very soon). from a press piece i saw about it they should have ample seating (i think it said it could hold up to 200 people inside with a garden for half that many, but i may be misremembering). youre not likely to find posts on it on the outer boroughs board, but if you wait a few weeks and are still making decisions, it may be worth getting in touch with them.
edited to add: i got over my case of the lazies to pick this link up for you - may be worth contacting someone at der schwarze kolner to see if they will be able to accomodate you at the new space:
