There are a lot of Italians in New York. This, by default, results in a lot of Italian restaurants in the city. I have been fortunate enough to discover a plethora of restaurants that serve Italian dishes, but Tarallucci e Vino has stolen my heart. This restaurant – with multiple locations throughout New York City– is one of the best that New York has to offer. I have been able to see the benefits of using a restaurant like this for private parties. I have been to conferences here at the Cooper Hewitt room, and I have been to private parties at the Union Square location. It is easy to see how people can praise this restaurant because the menu is delicious and the atmosphere is majestic.
One thing that I can say about the private parties is that these celebrations were classy affairs. The staff that serves are always professional, and the decorations are very tasteful. In the heart of a city like New York there are a lot of places to have parties, but many of these places are a bit too contemporary for my taste. Some of the bars have a rugged outdoorsy type of feel. Others may have a grunge look. This is what many of the millennials are into. I guess I am just old fashioned, but I like elegance when it comes to having any type of private party. This is what Tarallucci e Vino has managed to present, and that is why I have gravitated towards these locations for private parties. It is not too contemporary, but it is not outdated either. The atmosphere at the Tarallucci e Vino locations will fit remarkably well into any type of venue.
Some people have asked me how Tarallucci e Vino can be the perfect place for a birthday party but still be ideal for a wedding. I don’t have an exact answer. I just know that it is. In order for one to really get the feel for the private room they would just have to see it for themselves. I know I was wondering the same thing because I went to a birthday party for someone at the Union Square location first. I thought that it was a great place for a birthday party. When I was invited to a wedding reception in this same location I wondered how they would pull off something that was not quite as casual as a birthday party. When I attended the reception, however, I was floored by just how lovely the table arrangements and decorations were.
I must give accolades to the staff members that are in charge of getting the rooms ready for the various parties that are being thrown here. These staff members really know how to make the most of the available space. I was thrilled to see how things turned out for the reception. It was like having access to a fancy VIP affair. Tarallucci e Vino is certainly an impressive private party spot.
