I am looking for a fun place in Manhattan for a rehearsal dinner. There will be about 55 people on a Friday night. I want either a large enough private room or a small enough restaurant for which a buy-out makes sense. The fantasy is Latin American but renting out the good ones like Suenos, Agave, and Hell's Kitchen are going to be mucho dinero!
Any memorable private dinner events or otherwise general advice to share?
