I know this may be a tall task at my price point but was offered this at a specific restaurant so I wanted to see if there were any similar options.
When calling about a reservation for 10, a restaurant was able to work with me on helping the chef create a menu for the night. I was quoted around 50-60 (no drinks) but ended up passing it over due to the cuisine type.
Are there any similar stories or restaurants that can possibly do this?
Before the kitchen shuffle the private dining room at Gordon' Ramsay (@ The London Hotel) would do this for us.
I am sure they still will, but I cannot -- in good conscience -- recommend the place.
Having said all of that, many restaurants will be happy to accommodate special requests for larger groups, and some will even go so far as to allow you to tailor a specific set menu. Call around.
We did it for a friend's brithday at Giovanni Rana a couple of weeks ago.. We were all pretty happy!
