We're part of a professional group that meets annually in the fall for a meeting in the Financial District, followed by dinner for about 50-60 people.
In the past we've taken over small restaurants for the night. Or met in a separate banquet room of a restaurant.
We have traditionally brought our own wine.
In the past we've bought out Palio D'asti (meh) and been in a banquet space @ Epic Roadhouse (good).
Interested in all types of cuisines (Italian, Cal-Med, American, French, Greek, Spanish, et. al.--had the thought of a Chinese banquet meal).
