I'm planning on proposing to my girlfriend next weekend, and I'd like to surprise her with a celebratory brunch next Sunday with both of our parents and a few of our close friends. I'm looking for a place with a reasonable but tasty brunch (with cocktails) for about 16 people.
I'm interested in a private area or room, but in most of my research, I'm finding that most rooms I'm finding are built for a bigger group, or require a per person, prix fixe type of situation. I'm trying to avoid that, and let all of our guests "go dutch" and just order and pay for what they want. Even just a set off part of the main room with a little bit of privacy would be ideal.
We live on the Upper West Side, but I'm certainly open to any neighborhood.
Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!
