I'm looking for a spot to go for a celebratory dinner after my law school graduation in two weeks. It's going to be a group of family - about 12-15 people. Grad is at Lincoln Center, and while I live in BK, most of my family lives on the UES, so uptown or midtown seems most logical.
Am a bit of a foodie myself, and appreciate an on-point vibe as much as the next chowhounder, but don't want to make my parents spend too much (i.e. was thinking of the 4 course tasting at telepan, but for 15 people, before drinks, tax/tip this would add up to more than I want to make them spend), so I'm looking for suggestions that would come in at under $50pp. This makes most sense probably with a place that will do a prix fixe for such a large group - private room or not doesn't matter. That being said, if there are non-prix fixe options that seem good, I'm open to them as well.
Any suggestions so so appreciated!
Thank you all in advance!
