Looking for special occasion dinner for 12-14 people

Miss Needle | Mar 7, 2008 12:01 PM

Hi. I'm trying to plan DH's 40th birthday celebration. We're planning on 12-14 people, but would like them seated together (as opposed to 2-3 tables). Private dining is preferable but not necessary. I'm thinking Contemporary American/French. We've got a bit of an eclectic group -- a couple of vegetarians, a couple of chefs, a couple of people who are picky eaters (eg. no seafood, no "strange" vegetables like salsify, no strong cheeses, etc.) and a couple of pregnant women. Would be great if they allow corkage as there are a couple of special bottles I'd like to bring. I'm finding a bit difficult finding a place that can accommodate all of us. I'm thinking along the lines of Eleven Madison Park or Daniel. Any other suggestions? I find the big hindrance is finding a place where we can all sit together. (eg. Eleven Madison Park can only seat max of 8).
