Luckily since you are staying in Midtown you have are centrally located to a bunch of areas. What kind of style are you looking for, classic NYC? trendy?

A few ideas, some of these have private rooms – check OpenTable.com, Menupages.com, and Yelp.com for reviews, pictures, and info. Most of these are in Midtown unless I state differently, but in a cab these are all within 15 minutes from Times Square:


Hip and Trendy:

W Times Square

TAO (ask for the Skybox)

China Grill

Kittichai (in Soho, thai food, beautiful, very very cool)

Lure Fishbar  (also in Soho, very cool – ask for the wine vault)



Foodie (also very trendy, great ambiance):

Fig and Olive

Park Avenue Winter (Upper East Side)

A Voce Columbus

Alto (AMAZING and beautiful)

David Burke Townhouse (Upper East Side, beautiful)

Dos Caminos 3rd Ave (fun, upscale, Mexican place, great margaritas!!)

Gramercy Tavern




NYC Classic:

The Central Park Boathouse

The Russian Tea Room

The Four Seasons Hotel (ask for one of the private dining rooms)

The Plaza Hotel



The Water Club (ask for the Club Room)

If you’re looking for a good place to have a dinner reception. I’d recommend Carmine’s. It’s an italian restaurant that has family style service. Great for groups.

@katsupgirl: I was totally going to recommend Carmine’s – but I just thought it might be a bit too loud and touristy for a celebration dinner. But I do love the food!


After reviewing my huge list I picked up my top picks (incase that big list is overwhelming haha):


TAO (but you’ll have to explain the importance of your event – or they’ll make you wait forever)

Kittichai (great thai food, awesome decor, reasonably priced)

Alto (love love love this place. great italian food. beautiful decor. Brad and Angelina are a fan if that means anything haha)

The Central Park Boathouse (You could walk around the park in your bridal gear and take some kick ass pictures!)


good luck! can’t wait to hear what you pick!
