Festive Chinese Dinner for teens
Originally thought that Chinatown Brasserie would be the perfect place to hold a teen party. Now that they are closed, any ideas? Planning to invite 20 girls to celebrate my daughter's Sweet Sixteen. She loves chinese food and wants a pretty setting. I would prefer to keep it under $50 per person. Thanks in advance.
Red Farm will accept parties of ten or more either for early dinner (5 pm) or late (9.30 onwards). It's small and decorated in an urbanite's idea of charming farmhouse. If your party comprises 20, I think you'll take up about half the restaurant. Google 'Red Farm New York' images for photos. The food is a modern take on classic Chinese-American fare with some Pan-Asian influences. You'll have to order a set menu for the entire party though.
Teenage girls might appreciate the 'pacman ghost' soup dumplings.
Dim sum lunch at Hassakan would work, I think.
Here is a review of their dim sum:
Here's their group dining menu for lunch:

Thanks all, these sound like wonderful ideas-- she may have to have more than one party just to enjoy all the places!
I sent a gaggle of teens there last year, loved it.
It's more food than setting, but still. It's Chinatown.
