Need private room with fireplace in Manhattan for December anniversary dinner - 15-20 people

I threw a birthday party with about 15-20 people last December at 5 Ninth in the private area upstairs. The food was good (may not meet your standards for a foodie) but the room itself was very cozy with a nice ambience (i think there was a fireplace).

Week along the Rhone

I second Mitch. I had a wonderful meal there. Every one in my party enjoyed their 3 course meals, all of which was so fresh and well rounded. The owner, Mitch, could not have been nicer, and we had a great experience there.

Favorite dishes at Perilla

i recommend the duck meatballs and calamari and watercress salad as must have apps. the entrees change relatively frequently, but you can't go wrong with the hanger steak. I also highly recommend the grilled dorade with rice cake and dukboeki sauce. desserts are also amazing - from the doughnuts to the chocolate souffle!

Is "Trendy" And Delicious Possible?

i think la esquina provides the best of both worlds - above average (for new york standards) mexican food and definitely a good scene.

Sydney for New Years

I will be in and out of Sydney around the holidays, and was looking for somewhere to go on New Year's Eve that would still take reservations and is within sight of the harbor fireworks. Any suggestions that are fun and festive are welcome. Thanks in advance!

La Esquina - New number?

Does anyone know the number for la esquina? i tried calling the 1-877 number as well as the 646, but both are disconnected.
