There is nothing that is better than home-style Italian food, and it is even better when delicious Italian dishes are served at special events. The idea of a gorgeous Italian setting to go with sumptuous home-style Italian fare, is indeed a lovely one. Italian food is well-loved, and for good reason, just thinking about the enticing aromas is enough to make one swoon.
Italian cuisine is considered one of the healthiest in the world. True Italian dishes are made with only the freshest ingredients; from the olive oil, to the fresh vegetables and herbs, and homemade pasta, these dishes not only satisfy hunger, they nourish the body and are incredibly healthy! And don’t forget about the garlic! Garlic is known to be an amazing source of antioxidants, and has even been touted as a treatment for snake bites.
Special events are the perfect occasion to marry cuisine with decor; the pairing of a fresh Italian meal with a beautiful, Italy-inspired event space is truly a recipe for success. Taralucci e Vino is a beloved restaurant throughout the city, with five locations. In addition to their well-regarded neighborhood restaurants, the team has two event spaces, located in Union Square and at Cooper Hewitt, which are both spacious, airy, and truly exquisite.
Within the Union Square space, there are several configurations that can be tailored to the size and needs of any event. For a reception, the capacity size is 30-120 people; 10-70 people for dinner only, and if there will be dinner and dancing, 10-120 people is the capacity. The intimate Mezzanine is perfect for a cocktail party for 30 or reception for up to 80 people. The 6th Floor Loft is very versatile and can be configured for any type of event with up to 120 guests.
Cooper Hewitt is a truly unique Museum setting. The Great Hall, Trustees Room, and Lecture Room all offer a breathtaking backdrop, and are able to accommodate various configurations of seated dining and receptions, according to need. The Great Hall encompasses 2,000 square feet and accommodates 70 seated, and 250 standing. The Trustees Room is bright, intimate space that holds 40 seated or 80 standing. The Lecture Room is perfect for presentations and events that require a full complement of Audio/Visual Equipment. This space has the capacity for 100 seated and 175 standing.
The true jewel in the Cooper Hewitt event space is the Arthur Ross Garden and Terrace. This magical space can host 600 seated guests, or 1,000 standing. The lawn can be tented if that is what your needs require; this space is perfect for personal and professional events, and would be a magical setting for a wedding or any other type of celebration.
Tarallucci e Vino has hosted some truly remarkable events at their venues, including Facebook, Google, Bloomberg, Spotify, and Forbes. No matter how large or small your event, our team is here to ensure top-rate hospitality for any special occasion.
