Large Group Dining; BURLINGTON

Hello All,

I'm looking for a restaurant that will accomadate approx. 30 people for a dinner speaker program in the Burlington area. The restaurant cannot have more than $$$ and it needs a private or semi-private room. Any ideas?

    it is expensive and only a tad above mediocre but cafe escadrille should be able to accommodate you

      Dandelion Green may be able to handle your party. Stay away from Cafe Escadrille at all costs, it's aweful.

        My good friend had his rehearsal dinner at Dandelion Green and overall I thought it was very good.

        Try L'Andana on Cambridge Road. I believe they host private events.

          I would put L'Andana in the $$$$ category. Perhaps Not Your Average Joe's or Papprazzi could be an option?

            Papparazzi has a large, private room upstairs that we've used for private functions at work (w/ bartender as well)

            That's the only place in the area I can think of with a private or semi-private room that isn't $$$$ - I haven't be to L'Andana though.

            The Naked Fish out the Middlesex Turnpike near the Bedford/Billerica line has some large areas for private parties and an interesting menu. They also have a couple of steak and chicken dishes for the non-piscavores, if any.
            http://www.nakedfish.com/home.html - menus, etc.

              It may be a bit above your price point but it would be worthwhile checking out Catch on Church St. in Winchester. It is a small restaurant but I know that you could reserve the entire restaurant for a private party. They may have some restrictions on being available only on certain days but it is a very nice place with excellent food and outstanding service. Although it is primarily a seafood place they alway have a couple of non-seafood choices available too.
