Looking for a restaurant that ideally would have a private room for 25 people near Hyatt Grand Central (or a short cab ride) for a Friday dinner in a month. A private room is preferred because we'd like to have a speaker. Prefer a set menu so everyone knows what they're going to pay. These are people from other states, most on a budget, who will not know each other. Last time a dinner like this was planned, people argued for half an hour over the bill.
So thinking maybe $25-30, (not counting drinks), pizza could work. I found:
The Perfect Pint (says they have a private room)
Any thoughts about these or does anyone have other suggestions?
