Hanukkah Brunch in December

h

I know this is early, but does anyone have any ideas on where a brunch to celebrate Hanukkah could be had in December. We would prefer a private room as there are around 4 kids and 12 adults. It doesn't have to be a "jewish" style restaurant, but hey you can't beat some fresh lox and bagels. We are looking to eat anywhere from center city philadelphia to lower bucks or even the main line.

Any help would be appreciated!

    How about Zake's in Fort Washington (on Bethlehem Pike)? It's not in one of the locations which you mentioned, but the food is really great, and they do all of their own European-style baking. I'm sure they'd do a really nice brunch. If you're all coming from CC, Main Line + lower Bucks the location might be a good compromise.

      How about the 4th Street Deli in Queen Village? Lox, bagels, latkes, pastrami in ridiculously large portions. I

        bump...bump... time is getting closer. We are looking for something a little more casual than the London Grill. Any more ideas?

          London Grill in the Art Museum area usually does special menus for the Jewish holidays. I doubt they have anything put together yet, but they do have some private space upstairs. Their food is always delicious.

            There is an events calendar on the London Grill website.. Right now there is a description of their Rosh Hashanna and Yom Kippur menus.

            Have you thought to consider calling a place like Bala Golf Club?
            They do outside catering and such.
            I bet they'd be able to accommodate you.

              I will look into these places. Any idea about how much money we should expect to pay per person? If it is too much money, I will be the one ending up doing the cooking.
              Thanks

                Pond will do a fine job but it comes with a price.
                That's why I suggested Bala Golf Club (or Radnor Valley Country Club)

                uhhhhh, Philadelphia???? READ THE WHOLE POST!!
                Hopper, If the Rose Tatoo does brunch they might be able to seat you upstairs. Also, Brasserie Perrier, again, if they do brunch, has private rooms upstairs as well. The company I work for has done holiday lunches at both places in the past few years. On the Main Line, look into Pond. The Radnor Hotel supposedly has a good brunch also. Happy hunting and L'shana tovah.

                  Sorry, I missed the city - I was trying to be helpful.
