Surprise party venue w/ no fee?

I am planning a surprise party with about 20-ish guests coming. I want to host it in a lounge or something but don't want to pay for anyone's drinks (they will buy their own). Does anyone know of a place that will hold that many people and can possibly accommodate without paying a fee or charge per person?

Thanks so much.

Per Se quality b-day dinner

We've been to Eleven Madison Park, Daniel, and Le Bernardine. I'm thinking Aureole might be a good choice. He's mentioned it before... I've never heard of La Grenouillie. Anyone else been there?

Thoughts on Daniel?

Definitely Daniel. La Bernardin is SO not worth the price. It is seafood, but nothing special, service is horrible. Bleh!

Also Try 11 Madison Park....

My boyfriend and I have been to TONS of amazing restaurants in New York. I need to make a reservation for his b-day but have no places in mind that we haven't been! I'm looking for something upscale like Per Se or Jean-Georges quality. Please suggest.....!!!!

Thanks!

Creative Cocktails?

Most amazing drinks...EVER would be at Milk & Honey. You can't get in unless you know the number (which I'm not giving out, sorry) but owned by the same man is Little Branch, open to anyone. Same amazing cocktails and also a bit cheaper!

Breakfast on Upper East Side

Try Bistro Le Steak on 75th/3rd. It has a really good brunch, great bloody mary's and great prices!

Upper East Side Eats?

Totonos Pizza is super good.
Bistro Le Steak is great for brunch and has a great "Le Steak Burger" and french onion soup!
Etats Unis is really good
Vinyl is good for cheap breakfast

Wait time for Serendipity 3?

I waited 5 hours once. Luckily I lived right around the corner so I just went home for the wait. I think it is closed now due to health violations so you may want to call first.

Absolute BEST restaurant in London (fine dinning)

I want to know what the best restaurant is from multiple people. I'm not expecting everyone to agree, I want different ideas of what is good.

Absolute BEST restaurant in London (fine dinning)

Where is the best place to eat in London? I'm looking for the finest meal available. Something that can top or come as close as possible to New York's Per Se.

Burgers & Cupcakes

The Corner Bistro for a great burger, then a nice short walk to Magnolias for their famous cupcakes.

!!!*DINNER TONIGHT UPPER EAST SIDE PLEASE HELP*!!!

So I went to Chat Noir. The food was excellent. We had the salmon tartar and the scallops on a half shell to start and then the steak frites (i got the gorgonzala, he got the bernaise)and we had the chocolate cake for dessert. It was all wonderful. It was suprisingly crowded for a monday night but they sat us in the corner so I didn't mind the noise. Thanks for the suggestion.

It's white truffle season (I think)

You can buy them an Elis for $150 per ounce!

1st Ave and 64th area suggestions?

Okay, I have to say that I hated Sushi Seki! There was this big hype about it and it's not very nice, it's expensive and the sushi wasn't that great at all. Try Iwasaki just down the street from Sushi Seki (it's on 1st btw 61/60th I think). It is absolutely amazing I go there at least 3 times a week. The fish is amazingly fresh are tons of "special rolls" and it's very cheap. The only draw back is the ambience isn't that great. If you're looking for ambience, try Totoya on 1st and 63rd.

LA Chowhounder on Burgers

I am still craving In-N-Out Burger even though it's fast food! In NY I haven't found too many good burgers. The best I've had are J. G. Melon, Corner Bistro and Shake Shack in that order.

I have a PF Changs craving. Anything in Manhattan with good lettuce wraps?

Believe it or not, the lettuce wraps at California Pizza Kitchen are pretty damn good. It's on 60th and 3rd Ave I believe.

Babbo's equal?

It doesn't neccessarily have to be Italian. I am open to anything that is impressively good.

Babbo's equal?

I tried to make reservations at Babbo but they are booked for the day I wish to go. What is the second best place in your opinion?

Nice dinner for 6 around $300?

My family is coming to NY and I want to take them out to a nice restaurant. There will be 6 of us in our party and I want to spend around $300-ish. Any suggestions? And yes, I've already tried and failed to get us a res at Babbo :)

Thanks!
