Finding the perfect private event space in NYC can be a challenge. Getting the right venue for a cozy lunch with close friends, a romantic evening or even a rehearsal dinner is important. There are many great options if you know what vibe you want and where to look.
For a cozy, earthy atmosphere in both decor and menu, Red Farm on the Upper West side might be just the place. They offer a Chinese food menu made with fresh greenmarket produce. Not only is the food delicious it is beautifully presented. The food is remarkably not greasy and the fresh flavor makes this restaurant stand out when it comes to Asian cuisine. The Dim Sum and Duck Spring rolls are tantalizing and even though it may require a wait, the Lobster Long Life noodles is worth hanging around for. A bonus to the refreshing food is that they offer communal tables and pix-fixe menus for bigger groups. Red Farm is a restaurant worth checking out for a more casual and relaxed private meal.
If the vibe and menu need to be a little more formal, or maybe more romantic, check out Greenwich Village’s improved Acme restaurant. The drinks at Acme are excellent, and the clean, warm look may be just the atmosphere your quiet dinner needs. The menu is American cuisine but never boring. Danish Chef Mads Refslund reinvigorated what was once Acme Bar& Grill into a more formal, romantic highlight in NYC. Acme has a private room downstairs that can be reserved. The private room is usually lit with candles and the walls are decorated with exposed brick. This is a one of a kind location serving great food and is a great location for a quiet dinner for 2.
Looking for the perfect space to hold a rehearsal dinner or meal with more than 10 people can be a greater challenge. Many restaurants like those above cater to smaller groups with limited seating. To find great food, elegant atmosphere and ample room for guests, Tarallucci e Vino fits the bill. Beginning with the food, Riccardo Bilotta makes incredible traditional Italian cuisine sure to please any palate.
The venue is even more remarkable. The perfect setting for a cocktail party, business dinner, wedding or any other event two large rooms is available. The first, The Mezzanine can fit up to 80 guests and has a bar, a wine cellar and lounge area. If a sit-down dinner is required this space can seat 30 people for a one of a kind Italian meal.
