Surprise party in New Haven area

Hey all,

I am in the process of planning a surprise party for my wife who will be turning 32 this fall. I’m looking for a place to have the party. My wife and I like all kinds of cuisine. I’m looking for a fun place that can accommodate ~25 people. The place does not have to be fancy but excellent food is a must. Anywhere along the CT coast line could work. Any ideas???

  1. I have had parties at Thali and Foster's in New Haven, both had private rooms, great food and were very accomodating.

    1. I second Foster's - great chef and good food. Also, I would recommend Barcelona - I was there recently. The food was so good, I can't wait to go back. And. the service was excellent.

      1. I can second both Foster's and Barcelona. Recently held a party there (Barcelona) for 12 and it was great fun and great food. The one problem is that it's not private, but we liked that actually.

        Zinc would be another one to consider. Very good modern american/asian fusion and they have a private dining room that seats up to 32.

        1. I definitely second Barcelona. Great atmosphere for a party and with that number of people you could probably try one of everything!
