I know it's last minute, but I'm trying to find a fun, yet intimate, place for a dinner party for 14 people -- in downtown Manhattan, below 14th street (east or west), or Brooklyn. Nothing too pricey but good food and good drinks (or wine) is important. I'm thinking of somewhere with an awesome backyard or garden, or maybe a great indoor space that's not so loud you can't hear anyone. Mexican, Italian, Indian, French, American - anything really. Someplace new, even BYO, is fine too. Anything come to mind?
