Private Room Recommendations for intimate dinner party

I'm throwing an intimate dinner for a birthday celebration - about 12. We are looking for a relaxed spot - not formal dining, but food needs to be a focus. Am planning to bring wines from celler ( no problem with corkage fee). Any recommendations? I am thinking about Orange, which has a completely separate room/entrance, next to restaurant. Looking to spend no more than $100/person, including tax/gratuity, but excluding wine. Thanks.

New Year's Weekend - Paris

My partner and I will be in Paris over New Year's and are in need of recommendations.

We are looking for New Year's Eve dinner (thinking of Spring) - want something hip, good vibe, not pretentious, great food and winelist.

Also, looking for lunches and dinners the other days. We are thinking of doing a high-end lunch, but the rest want to be at cool, small restauarants - new or old-reliable.

And, would really love any choices for drinks/wine/music venue.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Landmarc - Tribeca

My girlfriend and I had dinner here in September 2007, after hearing some good vibes about the place. Located on a great street in Tribeca, cozy upscale pub style decor, with a very cute bar in the back. The atmosphere was warm and the service was perfect - friendly, yet not overpowering, informative, yet not pushy. The food was very good for the price, which was moderate. The Friday night pasta special (Linguini con vongole) was good and the fried calamari was excellent, as was the bread (crusty and chewy).
The restaurant touts an interesting wine list, which is only marked up slightly above retail for most of the bottles (about 20%). The only criticism is that for a restaurant that boasts a unique and affordable wine list, the stemware was extremely subpar - something you could get in a diner. Nor sure why the stemware is so poor, but it definitely prevented us from ordering certain wines. They should spend a little money and get some more appropriate stems for the different wine varietals.

Any thoughts on this?
