I am going to NYC this weekend (first time!) for a stagette, 11 girls total. We've tried to make dinner reservations at a few different places, but it seems that most places either (a) don't take large parties, or (b) require you use a set menu (which ranges from $60-100 per person).
Can anyone please recommend a nice restaurant in Manhattan that takes large parties? We need reservations for both Sunday night and Monday night. I am open to any and all suggestions. I think up to $60-75 per person is reasonable, but we are opposed to most set menus as they really restrict you in what you're able to order. Also, if there are any nice rooftop restaurants or restaurants with a beautiful view, this would be a bonus.
Thank you in advance.
