Chinese New Year-themed event at a nice restaurant?

Hi fellow hounds! Looking to throw a Chinese New Year bash (cocktails/dinner) for a max of 30 guests (looks like 27-30 people).
I have inquired at the Drake Hotel for a redux of their Chinatown pop-up menu, as well as Lee Lounge (**is this restaurant no longer any good? I have never been to Lee Lounge), and also Lai Wah Heen (for the classic Chinese banquet experience).

Most of my coworkers are non-Chinese so I am pretty sure I could get away with Lai Wah Heen for impressing them (I am also considering Lai Toh Heen but want to keep this downtown)...but I'd prefer something nouveau/fusion/interesting (my first choice is the Drake but not sure if this would work entirely).

Any other fancy Chinese-y restaurants in town that would do something delicious, unique, spectacular that I might be missing?

Other food notes: One coworker is allergic to shellfish and the other one is kosher (not overly strict, bt no pork or shellfish) that's why I am considering that Lai Wah Heen may not be the best option.
