Chef's Table or Private Room for Company Holiday Dinner

andbowen Oct 31, 2012 12:24 PM

I am trying to find the perfect place for our annual company holiday dinner, and I could really use some help from you guys. We only have 5 people in our office, so including spouses, we're looking for a 10-top that is private or semi-private with exceptional food. We tend to hang around for an extended period of time (and rack up the tab all the while), so it can't be somewhere that will book their rooms in 3 hour increments, like Oak, which wants to kick us out by 9, since the only available spot is at 6. It needs to be something different, so new is probably best. To give you an idea of where we've been and what we're looking for, this is where we've gone for the last 5 years: Hibiscus, Tillman's Road House, Shinsei, Charlie Palmer, and Private Social. But none of these except for Charlie Palmer offered enough privacy

The short list so far for this year is Bijoux, Abacus (but some of our people have been there before), Oak (wants to kick us out early), FT33, Boulevardier, Stampede 66, and Driftwood (not enough variety for non-seafood lovers).

Does anyone have any other suggestions? Thanks!

    Stephan Pyles has a very quiet private dining room with it's own kitchen.

      Is this what I've heard referred to as "Fuego", the little 4-person "restaurant" that Stephan Pyles has? Because I've been very curious about that - it seems like far and away the most exotic thing that Dallas offers, does anyone else even do a tasting menu? - and can find very little information. Has anyone around here tried it?

        No, this a separate private dining room for parties consisting of 25-40 people sitting at different tables. It's a very nice room closed off from the hustle and bustle of the main dining room.

      what about Tei An? There is the small room to the right after you enter the restaurant.

        Agree, that's a great room if you can get it on your terms. Bijoux is a strong choice too, and I would think they would be more flexible perhaps. Tei-An does expect to turn their tables ... but perhaps would make an exception??
