I am helping a friend of mine plan a dinner outing for his team. Good food and fun place for drinking for 10 people. I am assuming the diners' ages range from 20s to 40s and perhaps some older.
I don't want to pigeonhole 'Wall St Types' but I am thinking they probably like somewhat glitzy setting for their team dinner (who knows if these people are douchey?), but I cannot be sure so I would like to get some suggestions.
My friend was originally thinking Balthazar or Blue Water Grill, I think Balthazar is fine if he can get a reservation in time, but Blue Water Grill is a rather meh selection.
I was thinking if not Balthazar, they can go to Schillers as I see lots of 'Wall St. types' seem to really enjoy that establishment (same owners anyway) or Macao Trading Company for good drinking...Maybe TriBeCa or MePa area will work best because of proximity from their office and abundance of large and 'considered-hip' establishments.
