Need appropriate quiet venue:
On Sunday,December 7, my nonprofit is getting women together( they do not know each other) for discussions with some eats in Manhattan. First scenario is arrive around 11:30 or noon for about 3 hours. But I'm flexible on the time of day if better options are out there for afternoon tea, etc..that's ok too.. Maybe even nicer? Must keep cost pp under $25 incl tax and tip.
No private room...just want an area in a main dining room.
Family style or regular style ok so long as I can pre-order the menu for seamless service.
Any cuisine. Food must be acceptable, but more important is that the attendees can talk easily and feel the room is comfortable for conversation. Cooperative staff also a plus.
Estimated 12-20 people will attend with final headcount coming in a week prior to event.
Organization is BaldGirsDoLunch.org for women with the autoimmune condition alopecia areata.
