Planning my partner's 50th for just 4 or 5 of us. Have been to the usual suspects for chef's table/private dining - Daniel, Maialino, Barbuto, etc. but am wondering if there are any hidden gems in Manhattan? Would even consider a catering kitchen or small event space that would allow us to bring in a private chef. Casual is great, as long as the food is excellent.
I hosted a larger party in the private garden at I Trulli - it's not on most "private room" lists but it turned out to be a great find!
Any suggestions? Thanks!
