My problem is finding a place that has a large enough round table.

Landmarc for a 'meet-the-parents' (and siblings) with ten people?

Hi,

As per my original post (http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/584493), I am having some trouble finding a place with a round table that can fit ten people. The Landmarc has a table that is large enough...has anyone been there? any input? Is it very noisy?

thanks

A round table for a party of 10

Thanks. I gave Compass a call but they do not have a table that can seat ten people.
I am flexible on the cuisine...just as long as there is a chicken option (everyone eats chicken). Medditeranean would be ok. As would a Bistro...
The ten people seems to be the problem. I can not find a single place that has a round table for ten people. (Lastly, I understand what Zagat's cost guidline includes.)
As such, at this point, any place that has a round table that seats ten I am going to consider.

A round table for a party of 10

Hi All,

I am getting my family and my finacee's family together for the first time. There will be a total of ten people (including us). All our sibling are 21+ years old.

As I started with, our families have never met. Therefore, I do not want people to feel isolated during dinner because they are seated at the end of a rectangular table. Furthermore, if the table is rectangular the two families will seperate like boys and girls at a middle school dance. As such, I would like to find a place that has a round table for ten people and that is not too noisy. This way everyone can talk and feel included in the conversation.

I have already called about a half dozen places and none of them have a large enough round table. The places I can remember calling are: Forge, Five Points, Old Homestead, keans, BLT, Blue Ribbon, Red Cat, etc.

Some more details are as follows:
1) Price: around $55 - $75/per person as per Zagat's listings
2) Food: American-esque...any place where there is a meat, chicken, and fish option.
3) Location: Almost anywhere in Manhattan should be fine.
4) Date: first or third weekend in February

That should just about cover all the details. If you can recommend a place that would be great.

Thanks
