Saturday lunch party in Brooklyn
My relatives are throwing my boyfriend and I a luncheon in celebration of our upcoming marriage. They are coming from out of town to host; we're looking for suggestions of places to dine. There will probably be about 20 guests and we're looking for a place in Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill-ish area, Park Slope or DUMBO. Nothing too fancy, just good food and comfortable place to hang out for a couple of hours, maybe sip a bit of wine in the afternoon.
We thought of Bar Tabac because they have that back room/wine cask, but it gets kinda hot and crazy in there on the weekends. Other thoughts included Superfine (love the idea of strolling in that nabe or promenade before/after). Suggestions appreciated!
What about Frankies 457? they are delicious, comfortable to hang in, and definitely have you covered in the wine department.
Also, I bet Lunetta on Smith would be a good spot for a 20 person lunch. Their dining room isn't that much larger than that, that you could probably negotiate your group to be the only party there.
