Help! Small party rooms? [Twin Cities]
Does anyone know of a restaurant that has a private/semi-private room for a small group? By small, I mean 8 - 12 people.
It's my turn to host the family holiday gathering, but my house is all torn up. My family would probably be more comfortable in a separate room, as some of us are a little stodgy when other people are watching.
I'm racking my brain, but I can't think of anything good. Plus, there are some really picky/conservative eaters in the group, so full-blown ethnic and trendy places won't work. Ideally, I'm looking for a not-too-expensive place, but will settle for just about anything.
Can you help save me from mediocre food in a suburban hotel?
Solera has the Alhambra Room, which is a small space with a communal table and lots of cushions for seating, but that may be more expensive than you prefer.
There's also a big communal table in the basement/kitchen area of Chino Latino. I think that is geared toward larger groups, but you could ask.
It might be above your price limit but WA Frost's Fireside room holds 18-20 for a sit down meal. Looks like it's $25 to rent over lunch and $50 over dinner, with a $500 minimum for dinner.
We're hosting an event at Nye's and I believe there was a $500 minimum to get the back room.
I know Tryg's has a small party room that sits (according to their website) up to 24. Another place I had a meeting in a few months ago is Capital Grille which has a nice cozy wine room. Don't know about prices for either, sorry!
