LES Birthday Suggestions

MattMurdock Feb 12, 2013 12:54 PM

Hi fellow Chowhounds,

I've really hoping you guys can offer us some suggestions with a birthday dinner for next next weekend that fell through. We originally were going to book a 15 person rsvp at Pig & Khao but our experience setting it up with them has been rather horrible. The final straw came when they informed us the original menu they supplied us could no longer be approved and added an extra expense right before we were going to close.

But I digress, are there any places around the LES that can handle a large 15 person group within the next two weeks? No specific food preference and around $50 pp preferably.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. We're going to try and book Stanton first for the event. Thanks again!

      Both Excellent. Stanton has an upstairs area if you want to be separate from the downstairs buzz.

          Good suggestion but very easy to go over $50pp.

          They are on OpenTable AND taking large groups online which is unusual. I just checked and they can do one on 02/23/2013 at 6:30pm for 15 people.

              Otto can probably accommodate.
