A coincidence of different events is bringing a large number of family members to NYC on the same weekend in six months. We are trying to arrange a way for everyone to get together on Saturday afternoon, the only time all the visitors are free.
A quick poll of the visitors and those that live in NYC or environs indicates that 70 90 people would attend the party if one were arranged. Several people are traveling great distances; this is a rare opportunity for everyone to see each other.
Is there a restaurant or location, preferably on the Upper West Side, which can accommodate a big crowd or perhaps be rented out completely?
It is important that the food be very good and that there is room for people to circulate easily around the room. There will be very few small children. Very open to types of cuisine.
