Private Dining Space, 60 people - River North

Hi! I am looking for recommendations for a nice restaurant that has a great private dining space in the River North area that can accommodate 50-60 people seated. A short cab ride from is this area is fine too. It would be nice if the private dining space maybe had an outdoor area for cocktails before moving inside for dinner. So many of the steakhouse private rooms seem to be in the basement with no windows so it would be nice if the room had a nice view.

Thank you so much!

Town Hall, Michael Mina or Perbacco

So both Perbacco and Town Hall were booked. Michael Mina is still in the running. Now we have thrown Waterbar into the mix. Any thoughts on Waterbar? This dinner is an appreciation dinner for clients and we want it to be a lively place with great food so people will want to come. They will all be in town for a conference from all over, and they all enjoy nice restaurants. I will also look into One Market...

Any other suggestions for a restaurant that has a private room that can accommodate 35-40? I read that maybe Prospect would be a good place?

Town Hall, Michael Mina or Perbacco

I'm not positive on the number but between 25-35 people... Each of the places above have private rooms or can accomodate. Cost doesn't matter. Thanks!

Need a great restaurant in Napa Valley

Mustards Grill in Yountville: http://www.mustardsgrill.com/

It was my favorite place we went to in Napa Valley and we went to a lot of really great places. Atmosphere is good too.

Warm ambiance for mom's birthday

We went to Kokkari and loved it. It is very warm and the atmosphere is extremely pleasant. Its contemporary greek/Mediterranean and we loved everything we ordered.

Town Hall, Michael Mina or Perbacco

If I had to choose one based on food, ambiance, and the restaurant overall, which one would it be? Its for a large client dinner and we like lively and fun as well as great food.

Plus, these places all can accommodate private seating for large groups.

I have been to Slanted Door a year or so ago. Is it still a good place to go? I remember loving it!

Thanks!

Popular Nice Restaurant - dont feel like you are eating in a mall

I am looking for a fun, really popular nice restuarant that doesnt have the mall restaurant feel. There are so many nice restaurants in Vegas where you feel like you are eating in a mall restaurant or something. The cuisine and price dont matter.... Thanks!

Is Bartolotto the place in the Wynn? Would you consider it a romantic restaurant? I have heard to request and outdoor cabana table, is that correct?

Rise No. 1 What are your favorites?

I really like their cheese cart. We usually start with a bottle of benton lane pinot noir and cheeses from the cheese cart for an app. Then I always get the southwest chicken souffle(that might not actually be what it is called) and my husband gets the Jambon and Cheese. Then we split a dessert souffle. Its one of my favorite places in Dallas!

Visiting Dallas From NYC For 3 Days - What should I not miss?

Fearings is a great place to start! They also have a wonderful brunch.

Gourmet Mexican food in Dallas: Javier's. The steak filled with cheese is mouth watering, I forgot what it is actually called.

BBQ in Fort Worth: Railhead.

My favorite steak in DFW is Del Friscos in Fort Worth. I have been to Del Friscos in NYC, Houston, Dallas and this one is by far the best. Eddie V's in Fort Worth has a comparable seak.

Lonesome Dove is incredible. Tim Love also has a fun burger place in FW called the Love Shack.

Two dinners, first time to Seattle

Hello!

I am traveling to Seattle for the first time on vacation with my husband. Please help me with 2 restaurant recommendations for dinner! We are young (30s) and would like to go to two fun, upbeat places that can give us a taste of Seattle. Maybe one being a little more romantic? We are staying downtown on 1st street. We randomly stumbled upon the restaurants Lark and Wild Ginger online. Any good?

Thanks!

Dinner party for 30

Hello!

I am looking for a restaurant that is nice, where we can host a dinner party of around 30-35 doctors. Preferably a steakhouse, but it doesn’t have to be. We want it to have a great ambiance that’s fun and lively that also offers great food. A private room would be nice, but we don’t want to be stuffed in some back room where we can’t enjoy the energy of the restaurant. Any suggestions?

Best BBQ in Fort Worth?

Railhead

Restaurant for guy's night out?

If you are going to have sushi, Shinsei is the best. Hattie's in the Bishop Arts District has amazing food and fun atmosphere, but that may be too far for you. Hibiscus is good. I have heard the new Ocean Prime is good, it's right behind the Cresent, Bob's Steak house is good, Nick and Sam's....

Best places to eat in Dallas

Nice dinner: Fearings in the Ritz (buffalo tenderloin melts in your mouth)
Amazing food and fun for groups: Hattie's in the Bishop Arts District
Upscale Mexican food: Javier's (perfect for a Friday night before you hit the town, fun atmosphere and is always packed)
Brunch (big in Dallas): La Duni (I would only go here for brunch, their bloody mary is outstanding but has a spicy kick to it), The Grape (voted by Texas Monthly to have the best burger in Texas and its only served at Sunday Brunch)
Fancy dinner: Five sixty in the big ball dallas skyline is known for
BBQ: Peggy Sue's... Its a dump, but the food is great
Tex Mex: Manny's (order the Brisket Tacos)
If you are going to make the trek to Fort Worth and you only have time for one meal (dinner) the only restaurant you should have in your sights is Eddie V's, amazing seafood. I hate seafood and I cant get enough of their oysters....
Lunch: The Porch, Nick and Sams grill
Sushi: Shinsei
