I finally got around to trying to make reservations for a small dinner party for 30 people at L'Epicerie in Fort Greene only to find they've closed. (!)
I attended a small anniversary party there earlier this spring, and it was lovely—farmhouse tables, wildflowers on each, simple and exquisite three-course meal among friends with the chef attending to our needs the entire evening. Alas.
I've heard great things about Ici's private room upstairs, but this event isn't a wedding party, but a more informal party among friends. Is there anything similar to L'Epicerie in Brooklyn or beyond to do a private, even unconventional-style, dinner party for 30 people?
