Planning a party or private event in New York is easy thanks to all the awesome venues the city has to offer. The hardest part is choosing where to book! Whether you are having a wedding reception, a going-away dinner, or birthday drinks, there is a venue you and your friends will love. One fun choice is Red Farm on the Upper West Side. This place serves up fresh produce and fish and has a unique dim sum menu including things like pastrami egg rolls and duck spring rolls. They normally don’t take reservations, so if you want to avoid a long wait (and sample a delicious prix-fixe menu), get your group together for a private event here. You can also find Red Farm in the West Village, upstairs from its sister restaurant Decoy.
Another great option for your next event is Milos in Midtown. This restaurant has some of the best Greek food in town and its high ceilings and whitewashed walls give the space the airy atmosphere of the islands. Their indoor tables even have umbrellas for a sunny, beachy vibe. Book your next private party here for a fun dinner of fresh, light salads and seafood. Give their tuna burger, fried zucchini, or grilled octopus a try!
For an elegant event of any size, check out Tarallucci e Vino, which has locations in Cooper Hewitt and Union Square. They offer a delicious menu of Italian favorites for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner, including an extensive dessert selection. If you just aren’t feeling Italian, Tarallucci e Vino allows outside caterers into their venues as well. Both venues can accommodate parties of all sizes, from intimate dinners to large weddings or celebrations. Your guests are sure to love the vintage decor, decadent food, and spacious accommodations Tarrallucci e Vino has to offer.
