A coworker will be moving to San Fran soon, and i'm taking part in planning her send-off in two weeks. Looks like it'll be between 20 and 40 people, so we'll most likely need a private room or space. Budget is up to $100/pp, so that gives us a lot to work with.
Any ideas for somewhere interesting that can host this in Manhattan? Prefer no Mexican (lots of that on the west coast), and she's allergic to shellfish, so preferably not a seafood place. Steakhouses are good, she likes italian, or maybe something/somewhere that's quintessentially NY, since she's lived here for over 10 years and is sad to be leaving. Any thoughts?
