I posted this before but the host has revised his budget (now to $70pp) and decided to definitely hold this 11 person 80th bday party in Brooklyn in Feb. After I presented him with many options, he realized that Brooklyn will afford him a nicer gathering ...more bang for the buck! So now I am focusing on restaurants. Thinking Park Slope through Dumbo.
What I've thought of so far:
Tempo: spoke to them. It could be a good fit.
Five Front: haven't been there but wondering if it's nice enough. Host liked the idea of DUMBO visually.
Spanish: there's a spanish restaurant on Atlantic Ave. I was wondering about.
I could surely use some suggestions. Classy but good food.
So, any and all ideas are appreciated.
