Any downtown recommendations for a 30-person rehearsal dinner? We'd like to keep it casual (but nice) and not too expensive (under $100/person). We'll also have a number of nonadventurous eaters. A restaurant with a private room would be preferable, and proximity to Houston & Lafayette is ideal. If Five Points had a private room, I'd want to do it there. We're going to look at Il Buco's, but I think it'll be expensive, esp with wine. Considered Chinatown, but the food might not work for everyone. Italian would be fine, even Little Italy if the space is right. Any thoughts on Onieal's on Grand? Looks like a nice space and I'm planning to check it out this weekend.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
