We're a group of friends throwing an engagement party in Manhattan, which about 100 people may attend. We aren't paupers, but we ain't millionaires neither!
Having looked at the Zagat listing for places that have party spaces, it seems they are all a bit TOO fancy for our purposes. This is for May, but we are starting early.
Aside from a Chinatown banquet hall (which we have not yet ruled out) are there any other suggestions out there for a place to throw a party which not only has space for a whole lotta people, but also happens to have really good food? (Feel free to tell us to look outside of Manhattan.)
thanks so much,
