I need a place for 8 to have dinner on a Friday night (in two weeks). I really wanted Babbo but they don't do large parties. I'm going to call Lupa. Red Cat is a maybe-I have to call back. Can anyone comment on private parties at Lupa?
Has anyone had a large dinner party of late with great success? It's a good group of mostly out-of-towners looking for great food, great wine, and I'd like to show them a great New York night. I was hoping to do this downtown (wanted Spotted Pig but they already have a big party that night)but will also consider UWS (I have a reservation at Jacque-imo's for safety-thought that could be fun though I haven't been myself yet). I don't want it to be hugely expensive but am willing to pay.
Thanks in advance.
