I need to find a restaurant that will accept a reservation for 20 people (who are visiting NYC for a music library convention)for Friday, 23 February, about 7-7:30 p.m. The convention is at the Grand Hyatt Hotel (near Grand Central Terminal), so a restaurant within walking distance would be good. But, everyone is up for taking the subway to Little Italy, Chinatown, Greenwich Village, or any other brief subway ride. Price range should be $25-$30 per person, tops. Any cuisine is OK except some requested "no spicy food."
I am posting to Chowhound.com because I would like to give these out-of-towners a "real taste of New York."
I called Carmines, but they canot accept 20 people that night.
