Oh, the infamous holiday office party. Every year, the members of our editorial staff put down their Blackberrys and log off their computers to join together at a nearby restaurant for our holiday lunch party. Even Schutze stops griping about the jackasses at City Hall long enough to enjoy a sizzling fajita platter. Usually we dine at a Tex-Mex joint because, well, there are so many people to feed and corporate didn't appreciate the time we went to The French Room for a six-course lunch. Apparently caviar isn't in the budget. This year we're looking to break tradition and ditch the standard Tex-Mex fare, but it's hard to find a place to accommodate all 20 or so staffers. So, the burning question today is where should our pack of hungry wolves dine this year for the annual holiday party? Give us your suggestions for a moderately priced restaurant that can host a large crowd of bad dressers with poor table manners.
