Every year we go to a Chowhoundish place for the ofc. Xmas party; there are always about 40 of us. This year we're committed to a Brooklyn event, and I am a serious Brooklyn eater/Chowhound lurker. We've contacted the following places (not all of which I love, but they were suggested by other folks in the office). All have said "no" for various reasons (space, other bookings, etc): Convivium, Belleville, Vini y Aoli, Al Di La, Bar Tabac, and Sammy's. In any event, they give you a rough idea of price range.
We are waiting to hear if Bacchus will take us. I'm thinking we should also contact: Downtown Atlantic (where I am a regular), Cono, 360, Queen. What am I missing? Some place I have forgotten or have never been?
It should not be far away from public transit unless fabulous (e.g. Vini or 360) and not TOO far into Bklyn (e.g. Tomasso's), b/c folks will be coming from Manhattan and going all over the NYC area when done w/ dinner.
Thank you. Thank you.
