Another restaurant to consider for your event is The Nomad on Broadway. Here you will enjoy a New American menu featuring lots of fresh vegetables. The interior is dark and glamorous, perfect for a bachelor party or boozy birthday dinner. This place has many different private rooms to choose from, including the swanky Parlour, the skylight-lit Atrium, and even on the roof at a table in the hotel’s iconic cupola.
