I am a socialite. Parties are my thing. As someone that mingles with a lot of people I have been invited to more than a few parties. In NYC there is always something new and exciting to see. There is always a new restaurant to consider. It feels good to have access to a lot of the private parties that are held in some of the top restaurants in town. Some are better than others when it comes to hosting parties. I think that Tarallucci e Vino is among my favorites. The other spot in NYC that I favor is China Blue.
Both Tarallucci e Vino and China Blue are in Manhattan, but China Blue is Tribeca. Tarallucci e Vino actually has four locations throughout Manhattan so it is a bit more diverse. The thing that I fancy the most about China Blue is the accommodations. When you call the management will tell that they can accommodate parties of any size. I have been there and the rooms are quite spacious. The menu, as expected, is filled with Chinese goodies. The thing that I notice the most about the private room is the lofty type of atmosphere. There are lights in the ceiling that almost presence multiple miniature spotlights against the dark wood floors and bookshelves. I like the vibe of this area and that is why I would recommend China Blue as one of the better spots.
Tarallucci e Vino is a place to consider if an Italian menu is what you want. I have eaten lunch and dinner here, and I am thrilled by the choices that are available for food. This alone is enough to make me recommend this as a spot for parties. The thing that makes Tarallucci e Vino stand out is the number of spots that are available.
There private event space is located on the Upper West Side. There is another location at Union Square and East Village. The 4th location is at Cooper Hewitt. The great thing about the different locations is that each one has a different style of rooms. There is a different decor at each location. I have seen the spacious contemporary looking lecture room at one of the Tarallucci e Vino locations. I have also been to a wedding at the Cooper Hewitt location. I would say that the is the best of the Tarallucci e Vino locations for a wedding. That is because of the Arthur Ross garden and terrace. This is a large area that has room for 600 seated guests.
I love NYC because it has so many different environments for people that want to have parties. There are lots of restaurants that have these large private rooms so event planners have tons of choices. The thing that I like about Tarallucci e Vino and China Blue is that the food is quite delectable at both restaurant locations. This saves planners from the trouble of have to get caterers when they have parties in these private rooms.
