Trend or necessity? New restaurants are adding private dining rooms to their arsenal of attractions. This list of private dining rooms covers the metro area, spans over many cuisines, varies in price and is able to accommodate 8 to 250 guests, and everything in-between. The guide only covers specially-designated private dining rooms; many restaurants will allow for full buyouts. Food and beverage (F & B) minimums listed are contingent on preferred dates and times, and do not include tax and gratuity.
