Trying to find restaurants for 2 business dinners, one right after the other (with the same people, so we can't go to same place twice!), about 17 to 20 total. In mid-March. Creative, upscale crowd that prefers scene as well as good food. Private room if possible, or an area where we can have some separation from others--yet not quiet restuarant.
The meeting will be in the far west village, so downtown and/or west side is preferable.
We'd actually looked at Lever House ($3500 for the private room, and Matsuri - $5k for the private room. too rich for our blood, sigh).
Any suggestions? It's on a Wed. and Thurs. night if that helps any.
