Alba Bar & Grill (Quincy)--Any good for a group?

We are trying to plan a holiday lunch for about 40 people in the Braintree/Quincy area. I had a great meal a while ago at Trattoria Alba, but it is now closed due to roadway construction. I was wondering if its sister restaurant, Alba Bar & Grill, would be a good substitute, as I've never been. We are looking for a place with very good food, reasonable prices, close to Braintree. A place that could offer 3 or 4 entrees, a nice bar, and parking. Thanks!

  1. I've heard good things about Alba, but I've never been myself. However, I have been to Sintra in Braintree, and enjoyed it. I think it might fit your requirements well:

      They don't do lunch regularly, but might do one for the holidays. I'll give them a call. This is a great suggestion and I've heard good things about this place. Thanks!

    2. I'm not sure the current space Alba occupies can handle a private party of 40. However, they are moving to a new space across the street and maybe the new space can handle a party that large. I'd call and ask for Leo. I'm sure he could answer the question right away. Oh, by the way, the food is very nice, and would make for a great holkiday celebration. Also, a good wine list.

        Thanks, CocoDan. I heard the new place, called Bubbles, will be opening after the new year. But I do remember Leo from Grille 23, and I'll give him a call. I'm happy to hear both the food and vino are good. Take care.
