Wedding Reception for 150 in Manhattan . . . Suggestions Desperately needed

24 Fifth would be perfect! It is owned by the Glazier Group (they own Bridgewaters, Michael Jordan's, etc and until recent Strip House steak) and they have AMAZING food! 24 Fifth is located on lower 5th ave b/t 9th and 10th streets. It is the original lobby of the Fifth Ave Hotel that was restored to all the original detail (marble dance floor, chandeleirs, etc). It is perfect for 100-170 guests. I got married there 5 years ago and we couldn't have been happier with the customer service, space, location, food, etc.

Where to go for weekday lunch in private room w/ great food???

I need ideas from my fellow Chowhounders!

We are looking for a place to go for a weekday lunch to celebrate a law school graduation. There will be about 12-15 people, and we would like a private room. Ideally we would stay in midtown (where the ceremony is) but we are open to downtown as well. Money is not an issue.

Ideas???

Ideas for Bridal Shower Location - Please Help!

I am looking for a place in Manhattan to hold a small bridal shower for about 10-12 people.

Please let me know if you have ideas! It doesn't have to be a "typical" bridal shower sort of place (Alice's Tea Cup, etc)... restaurant, lounge, etc are all ok, we would just want a private room.

Hoping to keep cost to about $25-30 pp all in (tax/tip) if possible.

Ideas for Birthday Lunch in Boca Raton area???

I will be visiting South Florida (Boca Raton) in mid-December from NYC and I'm looking for a nice restaurant to celebrate a relative's birthday. It will likely be a Saturday lunch... so either an upscale lunch or a more casual place but with a nice ambience... on the water, w/ a good view, etc. No real budget but food must be great. We are all from NYC and real foodies. Any ideas would be appreciated!!!
