Need Italian or American restaurant recommendation for a group of 20 - 25.

Thank you for the recommendation. I have been once and wasn't crazy about the food.

They have a $60 and a $75 group dining option before tax, tip and drinks. Sounds great...and a separate space for up to 30 people. I know i can count on the food at Lupa as well. A few friends have been recently and have really enjoyed it.

Ahhh...good question. I'd like to limit it to $100 per person including tax and tip - for food only. Wine/drinks can be extra on top of that.

We are in charge of finding a restaurant for approximately 20 - 25 people for a family reunion dinner on a Saturday in December. Seems like a private room would be best...but some restaurants can section off a part of their space for a group as large as this.

Any recommendations? We are open to any section in Manhattan.

i think you are thinking of the Crisp-Skin High-Roast Butterflied Chicken with Potatoes. It is excellent. very fast way to cook a whole chickent, super moist, and so tasty because of the butter under the skin. I just do it in a casserole dish b/c it smokes up the house if i do it over the potatoes. Also, i don't really want potatoes that are soaking in chicken fat...but they were delicious when i made them.

LOVE the meatballs. They are truly excellent - and a very requested dish at our home. Also, their recipe for chicken parmigiana (i know, simple, but still worth following the recipe) is excellent. The fast and easy sauce has a perfect level of acidity for the parm and they tell you to put the cheese under the sauce so that the chicken stays crispy.
