We are looking for entertaining space because we are happily awaiting another wedding in the family, and so the time has come to vet the venue possibilities.  Haven’s Kitchen, located in a three-story converted carriage house on West 17th Street, is a lovely option.  We were welcomed  by Halle Heyman, an adorable and very capable woman who oversees private events, and given the grand tour.  Haven’s Kitchen is multi-purpose, offering just off the entrance a relaxed cafe with bar stools and serving healthy soups and light snacks.  In back, an open kitchen offers cooking classes.  The private rooms – first and second floor throughs – have wide plank floors, white brick walls, cosy sitting nooks, and a bar.  There is space enough for round or long trestle tables to seat 80-100 guests and for after dinner music and dancing.
