What type of food are you looking for? I think there are a lot of place that would be available to you.

 There is this place La Mela in Little Italy that has a set menu and wine is included for like $60-$70 per head. You can also get a semi-private room….

we are doing ours a Becco for that amount, and have a private room for 40.  after calling around to several places, we found that Becco was the best bet.

If you’re looking for a hip joint…there’s a place called Basta Pasta on 17th Street between 5th & 6th Avenue.  The website is http://www.bastapastanyc.com and it’s a great place!  The food is good and it’s a fusion between Japanese and Italian.  It is rather small but they may take reservations if you have that many people coming.

Bottino (50/pp), i Trulli (85/pp), Savoy (65/pp), the Smith (55-85/pp), Jane (55-85pp), Gradisca (starting at $3k flat fee), Caracello (45/pp), I’ Coppi (3500 flat fee), Otto (40-55pp) Borgo Antico (35-60pp). All prices do not include tax and tip, usually of about 9% and 20%. Most of these prices are just for food, not alcohol. I put the ones in that are out of your price range in case any other people need them. good luck!

I raided my own spreadsheet — now I just hope we don’t have the same day! 🙂 All of these restaurants have private or semi-private rooms, btw. Gradisca has great homemade pasta and a very cool back room, dimly lit with lots of candles. At Savoy, you get the whole upstairs but everything seems a bit overpriced, and the room is not quite as charming, although it is very nice and has a fireplace. The biggest problem with the room at Savoy is that there is a divider that doesn’t close all the way so there may be visual continuity problems for speeches adn the like. The others I haven’t eaten at yet. You should post here if fyou come up with some that aren’t on this list — I focused on Italian restaurants below 30th st.

La Mela is really not appropriate – there is a large phallus hanging from the ceiling in the main dining room!

There are SO many places in Manhattan at which you could do your dinner for 20-25 for under $100 per person.  It all depends on the food, ambience, and neighborhood you want!

If you are looking for something more casual, I would recommend three Italian restaurants in the East Village, all owned by the same people: Frank, Lil’ Frankie’s, and Supper.  They all have some of the best Italian I have ever had, and their catering guys are great (they are doing our reception).

 I am having my Rehearsal Dinner at the Boat Basin Cafe, and I will be able to go in at about 1200 for 26 people (just in case you wanted to save some bucks!!)
