Banquet for 30- HELP!
A friend needs to find somewhere that'll do a luncheon for 30. Needs to have great food, but not too terribly expensive. Thanks!
Why not try one of the Brennan restaurants. I know that the restaurant "Brennan's" can accomodate 30 people upstairs in there meeting/dining rooms. Great ambiance and great food. May not be too pricey. Also maybe "Red Fish Grill", another Brennan restaurant. It can definately accomodate 30 people and I don't think is too terribly expensive as well. Also try Mr. B's and Ralph's on the Park (across the street from City Park) - both Brennan restaurants. All have great food a great service and ambiance. Try going to www.neworleans-food.com to check out venues.
The upstairs rooms at Ralph's on the Park are lovely--several have galleries/balconies overlooking City Park. The food is dependable, though a little on the boring side. Nothing unpredictable or cutting edge, and usually a good value for the price.
Don't know what ranks as "not too terribly expensive" but Cannon's has an upstairs room that's suitable for a seated group lunch--good for an organizational meeting or such. The food is decent; nothing to write home about, but not bad in any way and the menu has enough choices to make most everyone in a big group happy.
Did you try Fiorella's on decatur street. They have a seperate dining room and everyone can order of the menu for about 10 a person or less. I gnore that other review. this is my favorite place ever to eat.
This is a re-post of my reply to another similsr thread:
I live in San Diego, and make about a half-dozen trips to New Orleans each year.
I was married in the FQ in November '04, and we had a rehearsal dinner for about 50 people at the Palace Cafe on Decatur. The service and food were excellent, and the staff was extremely well-prepared for our large party.
