i am organizing this year's holiday party for the office and although not limited to brooklyn, highly prefer staying in the borough as most of us are brooklynites and the convenience of being close to home after knocking back a few is a plus. tried the river cafe, but they wanted a min of 50 people (our party consists of 15-20 people). i've never been to saul but because of great reviews including the recent michelin rating was considering this as a possibility, although i know it's not such a big space and therefore am not certain they will host a party of our size. other thoughts i had were the pearl room in bay ridge, convivium osteria... basically, i am looking for a place with a great atmosphere that will offer stellar food and service. open bar included would be ideal, but not a must. all suggestions are welcome. thanks.
