Work event -- dinner or drinks -- 20 or so people, $50 pp

I've been tasked with putting together an "event" for work in next few weeks and given a relatively small overall budget of $1000. I've been trying to get us a private room in a restaurant (and have read the many posts here on private rooms), however $50 pp just really doesn't seem to cut it with tax/tip/beverages.

Current thinking is that we may do Rub BBQ a/la/carte. Lack of a private room is a downside but plan to bill it as "fun" trip to Chelsea (we are in midtown). Alternative is to give up on dinner and just get drinks/hors d'oeuvres somewhere in midtown.

If anyone has any suggestions for cheap, decent restaurant that would work (as well as any other suggestsion) would appreciate it. Party-planning is not my strong suit and budget is fairly limited.
