Chef Joe Ng’s diverse menu puts the main focus on his yummy dim sum creations, like duck spring rolls or Pac Man shrimp dumplings, fresh greenmarket products, and skillfully prepared fish. And, the chef’s veggie fried rice with Lobster Long Life noodles are simply the best ever. Their private rooms are great for large groups and they can even put together a table d’hôte menu for your group. What could be more perfect for that special meeting? They’re categorized as Chinese and open weekdays from 11:30am to 3pm, closed until 4:45pm and then open until 11:45pm.

When people are on the hunt for private event space in New York City, restaurants are quite often strong considerations. At most events, some sort of food is going to be served; so it makes sense to choose a place whose foremost specialty is food; and the event space is a great bonus. The Spotted Pig, a restaurant in New York’s West Village, is one such place. An award winning spot (earning one star from the Michelin Guide for the past seven years), the chef and her food have made the restaurant a huge success with not only residents, but with city visitors who include it on their must go list. From what some have said are the best French fries in the City to a brunch that’s fantastic in its own right, you just can’t seem to go wrong with The Spotted Pig. The location also boasts a great event space upstairs and with the restaurant’s immense popularity why wouldn’t one want to consider The Pig for their next fete. Another spot with fantastic event space is The Wythe Hotel located on the waterfront in the Williamsburg neighborhood in Brooklyn. From a screening room to an outdoor garden, the Wythe has no lack of space to host your event. The rooftop bar, The Ides, and restaurant Reynards, with its views of both the Brooklyn and Manhattan skylines, are also options. With four locations in NYC, Tarallucci e Vino, a café chain is also becoming known for its great event spaces. Hosting private events at only two of their locations, Union Square and Cooper Hewitt, the spaces aim to give the same great experience that patrons of the cafes have come to expect. The Union Square location, a loft space located in Downtown New York, can accommodate small intimate dinners to those events on slighter bigger scale. If you are looking to host a much grander celebration, the Cooper Hewitt, with four separate event spaces, would be your best bet. The Arthur Room & Garden Terrace can accommodate up to 600 seated guests and 1000 people standing. The menus boast of the seasonal produce from the local Union Square market as well as local growers, which speaks to the desire the serve their guests the freshest ingredients possible. The wines? They come straight from small, family operated vineyards in Italy. When someone hosts an event, they want it to be memorable – for the good. From the food, to the location – you want to leave guests with a lasting impression. Maybe even leave them saying that they want to host an event in the space. With so many spaces to choose from, it’s easy to be overlooked or just blend in with the rest. With an established chain of cafes, Tarallucci e Vino has also established themselves as great for a private event space. One thing is for sure: they definitely should not be overlooked.
