Top Five: Restaurants for Your Rehearsal Dinner

1 The Harrison: “I love their private wine-cellar dining room because of its intimate and classic feel. They have this long rustic table that up to twenty guests can sit surrounded by the extensive wine collection. Their cuisine is alwasy a big hit as well.”

2 Gilt Restaurant at the New York Palace Hotel: “When you enter into Gilt, through the courtyard of the Palace, the first thing you experience is the amazing bar. I love the combo of Gilded Age meets chic modern. If you want to experience a wonderful location, exceptional service, and a gastronomic meal, this is a best bet.”

3 The Private Penthouse at Barneys New York: “One of New York’s best-kept secrets. The room where you can host your dinner has these great French doors that lead to a small verandah, making you feel like you’re over- looking an arrondissement in Paris.”

4 Hotel Giraffe: “Dinner can be held inside the Penthouse Piano Suite, which comes equipped with a baby grand. They also have a beautiful outdoor-garden space where everyone can congregate for a quick cocktail hour.”

5 Loft Restaurant and Lounge: “This one has an Upper West Side address but a downtown feel, and the cuisine is Mediterranean and Asian. A great place to host a larger rehearsal dinner (the room holds 75).”
