I am planning a small party (about 10 people) for my father's 70th birthday in a couple of months. His only request is that we go to a restaurant where he will be able to hear everyone, so either a quiet restaurant or one with a private or semi-private area for the table. I have been thinking about having the dinner at a steakhouse because they serve his favorite foods, but I don't have a ton of experience eating at them. I know Sparks and Uncle Jack's have private rooms, but I haven't tried either of those. Can anyone recommend one over the other or any other restaurant in Manhattan that would fit the bill?
Thanks so much for your help!
