I'm graduating next May from grad school. Thought I was ahead of the game by looking around now for a place for a group dinner to celebrate, but kind of looks like not! Mistral and Hamersley's are booked completely.
Right now I have Gaslight booked. They have a semi-private room and the price is great, it seems ($45 per person). I've never tried Gaslight and have always wanted to, but does anyone have any opinions about (1) group dining at Gaslight and/or (2) a celebratory, grad dinner at Gaslight? I don't want a stuffy atmosphere.
It's going to be about ~18 of us and we all like a lively atmosphere. Doesn't need to involve music by any means though. For example, I think the noise level and music at Beehive would probably be a little much. We are open to options! Doesn't need to be a set menu or private dining by any means.
Other than Gaslight, I've sent emails to: L'Espalier and Sorellina. I hope with the names I've listed you all can get a sense for the "feel" we are going for. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or if I should stick with Gaslight! Thanks!
