My mother's 50th birthday is coming up in August, and she wants to have a dinner with about 8-10 of her female friends. Great food is obviously important, but she specifically said she wants to go somewhere that has an outdoor garden area where they could dine. Some of these will be women that have not met before, so it's important that they feel comfortable. Friendly staff who can handle a group of raucous women is a must!
I've heard nothing but good things about Gramercy Tavern, do they have a garden/patio? Im also considering Va Tutto! and Paradou, which looks like the prettiest garden from what pictures Ive seen. Is Paradou's food up to snuff? Any suggestions are much appreciated!
