Just walked passed Mermelstein's, and as far as the setting/location/space goes, you'd probably be hard pressed to find a better location (other than my dining room/living room or sukkah). There's plenty of room to sit, no need for reservations, and it's not crowded.

Wherever you want. We can do an after-party at Izzys.

Nothing beats 770. (Though I wouldn't take 770 catered food - I have been advocating for 770 to market it as a weight loss program and make money to maintain the shul, as anyone restricted to that food only would greatly reduce their food consumption).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Erm, I don't think location is the issue.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

It requires people to attend with open ears and hearts.
Now tell me what a DO requires? From some of the posts above it sounds like food indulgence is one of the requirements.

Always use an Amex, you'll thank me one day.

If food indulgence is one of the requirements, I'm out too.

But would be up to an old style meet up!

Not going to get any food indulgence from my side, at best some good schmaltz herring and pickles.  ;)

Only the real stuff. Schmlatz Herring. We can also have some good Batampte pickle juice to wash down the vodka.

I can't see how the tomatoes get in there, but FWIW: ;)

Nah. These days they overlap, so it's not really after.

I think most participants will take issue with you calling it L's minyan. And I don't know of anyone that calls it Chaim Tashkenter's minyan. None of his kids daven there (though grandchildren and great grandchildren occasionally do).

Didn't they pay to have the room refurbished?
Holtzberg doesn't daven there either but that makes no difference to anyone.
