Avital’s Tips For Choosing the Best Private Dining Room in NYC 

  • Capacity and Layout: Determine the number of guests you plan to accommodate and choose a venue that comfortably fits your group size. Consider the layout of the space and whether it suits your event’s style and needs, whether it’s a sit-down dinner, cocktail reception, or presentation.
  • Location and Accessibility: Opt for a private dining room located conveniently for both you and your guests. Accessibility via public transportation and proximity to accommodations are essential factors to consider, ensuring ease of travel for everyone attending.
  • Ambiance and Decor: Pay attention to the ambiance and decor of the private dining room. Whether you prefer a sleek modern setting, a cozy intimate space, or a venue with stunning views of the city skyline, choose a setting that complements the mood and theme of your event.
  • Cuisine and Menu Options: Explore the culinary offerings and menu options provided by the venue. Ensure that the cuisine aligns with your preferences and dietary requirements, and inquire about customization options to tailor the menu to your liking.
  • Hosted: If you’d like to sit back and enjoy the experience, consider hiring a host to facilitate. (All Avital Experiences include an expert Emcee Host!)
  • Technology and Amenities: Consider whether the private dining room is equipped with the necessary technology and amenities for your event, such as audiovisual equipment for presentations, Wi-Fi access, and private restroom facilities.
  • Budget and Pricing: Set a budget for your private dining experience and inquire about pricing packages offered by the venue. Book our Interactive Meal for simple, per person pricing.
