I need some help please with suggestions for a private (company) party I am planning. It's a retirement party for my boss and there will be around 125-150 people. I am looking for a location, hopefully, between 14th Street and 70th Street, east or west side, athough I am willing to consider anywhere in Manhattan and almost any cuisine. Ideally I'd like either a private room in a restaurant that will hold that many or the whole restaurant.
It's a cocktail/reception, no dinner, on a Wednesday night. I've been asked to find a place that will make it more of an "event."
I have already done a search on this board and made calls and even recommended a restaurant based on the original budget I was given. However I was asked to find the 'more of an event" place and my suggested budget was raised to help accomplish this.
I'd really appreciate any help or suggestions anyone can offer.
