Looking for a private room in a New York restaurant for a rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, anniversary or birthday celebration? Instead of searching through individual restaurants' websites for their private event offerings, check out Dine Private. A free website that enables you to search for private rooms by party size, cuisine and neighbourhood. It will save you lots of time! Dine Private lists details of each restaurant and includes pictures of the rooms. If you see something interesting, do also check the linked restaurant's website. I noticed some of the room capacities listed on Dine Private show capacity for a cocktail party instead of a sit down meal.
One of my favourites is The Harrison, which seats up to 22 guests in their beautiful wine cellar below the main restaurant.
