prcdt-

I know- i love the room! But 3 tables of 10- many of my gu4sts done't know each other and i think it could get awkward- i wanted a buffet space so people could mix and mingle, but the only option for that is an antipasto table and passed canapes, which i just don't think will be filling enough at 6 PM.

I've suggested other alternatives but the event director states these will not work out. Very confused about what do to, as the fiood at LV is unbelieveably good....

Found four places that will give me private
room, 1 hour cocktail reception with passed
apps and buffet style dinner- with a little
work each place can have some room for
dancing if it happens to break out-
would love opinions from those in the know
in regard to food and ambiance at
1)TriBeCa grill upstairs private room
2)
Laconda verde (amazing food but they
will only serve family style and won't work
with me- I can't see eating in 3 tables of
10)

3) Opia

4) rooftop lounge ( totally open if good
weather, enclosed if not) at Grammercy
Park Hotel-

event is a Sunday evening 6-10

thanks to all
Nadine

Catering tax and tip

ok-mI know it's a dumb question but my mind has sudently gone blank

is a gratuity always on top of tax?

Thuis, is it event price
tax
graturity including tax , or gratuity on only the food provided?

thanks,
nadine

NEED BUFFET in NYC 25-40 people-

I have looked at the expensive places- 230 fifth, bryant park hotel, tribeca grill, etc- so "upscale buffet or appetizer stations" doesn't appear to be oxymoron at all...and thanks phil ogelos and bkfan16 for some useful suggestions- I have already considered Patroon but do not want a steakhouse environment as i have some vegetgarian friends-

For more reasonable places, consisdering Crispos. Elizabeths, Le Zie, Remi- any more options welcome!
