which place in NYC has an event space to hold 40 people?
most top places have a way to provide you a private area, but note that if u are planning for a busy night like Thursday night, they will charge you what they would expect to make from normal traffic which can add up. I know Wall Street grill you can reserve the upstairs/covered and/or outdoor area (and I assume they would do the outside part depending on weather). I assume tabernacle and le brochette and wolf and lamb would rent out just their upstairs areas too in advance.
Reserve cut also has a couple of side rooms that together may fit 40. Izzyís in Brooklyn also has a 40 person room u can reserve.

Mike's gnocchi, corn soup, and yam fritters are still amazing, but boy was the short rib a disappointment.

Ramen bowl special was incredible.

Drinks have gone downhill. Prices have gone way up.

We flew out of there when JJs flight time was reverse delayed from 2am to 9:45pm.
I just assumed there was auto-tip added on top of the pricing as I didn't notice a tip line, but now I see that's not the case.

Auto-tip on top of service included is outright theft

Its the same thing. They do not take tips, they built the tips in with the price

Question we are all wondering is whether you tipped additional or just paid the bill as presented.

My recollection is that the menu states that the prices include service.

I never said they do, and was discussing the hypothetical. Pretty sure Iíve gotten CC slips with space to put a tip after the original receipt (which they sometimes donít bring back if you donít take it) had a service charge included.

The insinuation was that they might have, and it was explained that their pricing now includes a tip. Had they done that it would be theft.

They dont auto charge you a tip. The "tip" is already included in the price.

See the note on their menu

We believe that our employees should be paid a fair living wage without having
to rely on the unpredictability of receiving tips. As such we do not apply a tip
credit to our food service workersí wages and our staff is compensated at rates
that far exceed industry average. To make this change, we have increased our
menu prices in order to provide these raises to our staff. No portion of the
increased prices should be considered to be gratuities that are distributed to food
service workers as a gratuity

Are they suggesting that you should add a tip above the (increased) prices?

If not, then IMHO this paragraph would be a lot nicer if the last sentence was something along the lines of "As such, no tip is necessary. If you've been especially pleased with your waiter's service today and want to show your appreciation, a small tip is certainly appreciated, but it's not in any way expected.

No, they tell you not to tip in anyway. The owner literally told me "Do not tip" Like how every restaurant should be. Pay your workers. Soon there will be a rent fee, kitchen fee, food fee etc

Maybe, but service and water refilling is more attentive at other high-end restaurants.
