Late lunch/early dinner for group

My daughter's baptism is in Astoria. Family group of 10-15 will be going out to eat afterward. I'm looking for suggestions. I don't care if it's a private room or not. Prefer something reasonable in price. Will travel to Brooklyn as well. Most or Queens is open. Seeing as the family is from NJ they'll have to drive back afterwards and the only issue I have is parking. Dinner will be about 3/4pm on a Sunday.

  1. Trattoria L'incontro may be on the pricey side, but the restaurant will easily fit 10-15. Where in Astoria is the baptism? If the church is around there, they'll need to find parking for the baptism first, and since there are no meters on Sunday, no need to look twice!

      mepm is right Fan out from the church and find a place where, once parked, your group can just stay parked. The Church may have a parking lot, and, for a 'suggested donation' may be willing to lelt you remain parked there, That's usually what we do.

    2. What kind of food are you looking for? If you liek Greek/Cypriot food, you can do Zenon on 31st Avenue. Their hot & cold apps. are a meal in themselves and it only comes out to like $20 a person and you get A LOT of food. How about Island on 36th Avenue? Trattoria L'Incontro was a also a great suggestion...
