Private Dining Suggestions for 30 ppl (Portland)?

nyc1031 | Feb 13, 2007 02:11 PM

I'm looking for a restaurant where I can have an intimate, private wedding reception: cocktails followed by a seated dinner for about 30 people this fall. I live in Manhattan and love the style of Blue Hour and ClarkLewis, but upon visiting the restaurants I found the private room at BlueHour to be a bit too claustrophobic and the bar room at ClarkLewis to be much too loud, considering the other half of the restaurant would be open to the public.

While I want the food to be the focus, I'm looking for an airy, chic, elegant, simple setting (I know this is asking a lot, but I am willing to compromise!). Any suggestions for restaurants that have large private spaces, or smaller restaurants that would allow a full buy-out? Please help! I'm running out of ideas and finding this very difficult to research from the East coast. THANK YOU
