reasonably priced place - dinner for 12?
any suggestions for a birthday dinner at a reasonably priced place for 12? i live in brookline, but almost any neighborhood would be fine as long as it was delicious!
I've had pretty good luck with larger groups at Antico Forno in the North End.
Pastas and Neapolitan-style pizzas out of a wood-burning brick oven. It's above-average for both quality and value (almost nothing above $20) in the neighborhood, and it's boisterous enough to make for a fun birthday evening.
NB Their dessert menu is very, very limited, but considering the myriad caffes in the neighborhood, a little creativity could easily make this a blessing in disguise.

i just had dinner for the first time at the butcher shop in the south end last night. dinner for 5 with wine/beer and tip was less than $40 a person. the space is a little small, but they take reservations for parties of 6 or more, so I'm sure they could arrange something. the butcher shop isn't fancy, but it's definitely more upscale than the brookline family rest. i thought the food was very solid, too. definitely want to go back for more grilled corn and ribs... mmm.
I had my husband's birthday dinner for 13 people at Stella in the South End. The food is good (not fantastic, but solid) but I chose it because I knew it would please a large variety of people, the prices are moderate, I have always had great service & the atmosphere is upscale yet fun. Everyone really enjoyed their meals & had a great time.
