I've hunted through the archives, to not much avail. What I'm looking for: a party of 40-45 needs to get either a private room or a whole restaurant. Italian would probably be best, as we have people from all over the country including vegetarians, picky children, etc. Would like to keep the food cost around $25/person (open to doing either a set menu or *shudder* a buffet) but we'd also be buying a lot of wine/beer. Anywhere in manhattan is fine, though the west side is more convenient. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
