Rehearsal Dinner for 30: Manhattan, Thursday Night, ~$175pp inc Tax&tip

Try Heidi Swiss restaurant. They don't have a private room but their large space next to it can definitely accommodate your number of people and your budget. Good food, beer and wine.

ISO the grandest seafood tower!

Balthazar, their triple tier is a feast! A seafood tower extravaganza. Will take you a good 2 hrs to enjoy. Don't forget their wine list: Sauvignon blanc.

I went to Heidi with some friends and what a great restaurant it is! Open space with an exposed kitchen, the decor not your regular Alpine kind of restaurant. The food: outstanding!

Fondue lovers, this is the place to be! I sampled the fondue of my friends: smooth texture, tasty and… here it's available everyday.

As appetizers we shared the Appenzeller Mostbröckli: their equivalent of meat carpaccio, nicely thin sliced, cured in apple cider for a month and then air dried. Light tasting with just a hint of smokey flavor.
The raclette: tasty and creamy with intense scent the way it's suppose to be. Here it is served already heated accompanied by toasted bread.
Main course: I opted for the Bobo baby chicken: baked chicken with roasted vegetable and a savory reduction.

The menu shows a few of the Swiss specialties including white veal sausage/potato pancakes, venison/braised cabbage and a pork ragout/wild mushroom sauce.

European draft beers available as well as quite a selection of wines. I finished with a perfect Tokay.

All in all: this is a great addition regarding Swiss restaurant where this kind of food is available everyday at a reasonable price. Definitely a destination for the winter days.

Trying to find a Swiss restaurant downtown for great raclette, cheese fondue, cured meats and other Alpine treats.
