I need to book a reservation at a restaurant for 11 people on a Saturday night. My family from across the US is congregating in NYC that evening and I am resposonsible for locating an establishment that is below 70th Street and above Canal. We'd like it to be quiet enough to talk but not be surrounded by romantic couples having anniversary dinners. We're not big drinkers and enjoy Italian, Seafood, American - relatively healthy eaters. Looking for about $50/pp(remember: no alcohol).
Provate room would be great.
Please do not recommend Carmine's, Puglia, or anywhere in Chinatown.
