NYC Private Dining & Reception Space in Manhattan

Private Dining

Extend your dinner table for a star-powered meal, or celebrate your anniversary, wedding or business launch party in grand style. NYC Private dining is an unforgettable experience with modern bistro menus personally crafted for each party by Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian.

A stunning, oiled bronze spiral staircase leads your party from the main restaurant to the second floor, where five residentially styled dining rooms provide elegant seated private dining in Manhattan for up to 80, and cocktail receptions for up to 200. All private dining rooms offer oversized arched windows with grand views overlooking bustling Lexington Avenue. The Corner dining room features a vintage hutch that opens for bar service as well as lounge seating. Rolling vintage bar carts with a dedicated bartender are a delightful and unexpected service that may be requested to elevate your party’s experience.

Experiential offerings from pickling seminars and whisky tastings are available. Interested in topping it off with an in-person appearance by Iron Chef Zakarian? Allow The National’s private dining manager to handle every detail. From intimate dinner gatherings to cocktail receptions in Manhattan to full banquets, The National is the perfect setting for any occasion.
