I am looking for a restaurant/bar for a party somewhere in the city or Near North, and I am having a hard time. Hopefully, someone here can help. I am helping a friend to find a place for a b-day party; 50-60 of 40-years old, many with kids.
I need a nice private room and a place that would allow open microphone (for toasting and stand-ups) and a DJ.
I need an open bar or BYOB or reasonably priced bar (host is planning to cover it all)
I need the food that is more then just 1 salad + 1 plate. More like mid-eastern or Russian table or Turkish, or tapas. Idea is having many different dishes on the table served family style or buffet.
My budget is somewhere around $70 (incl. tips and gratuity) /person.
And I need it all for Saturday night.
So far only place that would come close is Reza's. Any other ideas?
