As an event planner I have traveled throughout the United States and done quite a bit of event coordination for a lot of different industries. I have also thrown my hat in the ring to help some individuals that may have had a need for a private room for a birthday or wedding. Every metropolitan city is different, but there are some elements of the big city that seem to transcend from New York to California. Many big cities have restaurants that also has some cool private rooms in the back.
In smaller cities I typically only see the smaller franchise restaurants. If someone has a birthday party gathering everything is right out in the open with no level of privacy. When you hit a bigger state and bigger city like NYC it is much easier to come across a restaurant that has a private room for guests.
In Manhattan, for example, I have discovered more than a few. I come across American Cut, and this has been a great place for me to coordinate events for my clients in Tribeca. This is a steakhouse sort of vibe that has a pricey menu, but my clients that live in the Manhattan area would expect nothing less than the best. I have booked the private room here on several occasions, but the moody dim lit vibe has always been a favorite for guests.
Another spot that seems to have become a hot bed for gatherings is the Rotisserie Georgette. I like this French spot because it has the look and feel of real elegance. I have been able to plan things here for private parties of about 12. The guests that like to see what is happening in the kitchen will admire the location of the room. It has a unique vibe, and I really like what this restaurant offers.
In New York there is also a great restaurant called Tarallucci e Vino that actually has several private events locations. This place actually starts serving at breakfast time and goes right into the evening hours. The food is delectable, and I thought that was a good sign. I figured that people would love to come here for a party because the food was awesome. I was right. I have booked private rooms at several of the locations and I have always had good reviews from my clients after the party was over.
The Tarallucci e Vino location that is referred to as the Cooper Hewitt Venue is the one that I frequent the most. I like this one because it has so much space. There are different private rooms so people have access to different types of parties. I like the fact that there is a seasonal menu so guests get a chance to try different meals in accordance with the time of the year.
What Tarallucci e Vino represents is class and style. It is such a delight to see how the restaurant has thrived. I really like what this restaurant offers.
