We're desperately looking for a nice-but-casual spot to have a rehearsal dinner for 40 or so people, and would love a view of the Manhattan skyline and/or water. Funky is fine, tho not grubby or divey. Any suggestions?
As an aside, we were supposed to have it at Alma, but they just cancelled on us after weeks of assurances that all was fine! We were so upset by how they treated us that we'd like to advise others against them as a venue.
