Places to eat in Baltimore Region that handle large parties?

WhatsToEatBaltimore Sep 30, 2008 06:58 AM

Looking for suggestions on places that easily handle large parties like 15-20. I know most places are going to charge extra for a group over 8. But trying to find a place, that I wouldn't have to rent a private room. (or spend a ton of money before anyone actually eats anything)
Any suggestions would be nice.

    If you are thinking Italian you have Sotto Sopra & Pazza Luna, Mexican think Mari Luna. What kind of atmosphere are you thinking about?

      Does Sotto Sopra have enough space to seat 15-20 people together? FoiGras

        I'd think Mari Luna might have a hard time with that big of a group.

          Tio Pepe's in Baltimore (Spanish cuisine) has private rooms

        I used to take my aunts and uncles to Liberatore's in Timonium each year during the Christmas holiday season. There would be about 15 or so people. We were given a lovely dining room to ourselves. The cuisine was creative, but not outlandish or trendy. The service was impeccable. FoiGras

          One dependable option would be Pazo, which has private rooms (no rental fees) and set menus that are fairly reasonable:

            Try Juniors Wine Bar in Federal Hill. 410-727-1212. I recommended it for a friend's bachelorette party and got back a positive report. They especially liked being able to continue the evening in the neighborhood.
            It's not very expensive, lively enough to sustain a celebratory mood, and they can accomodate biggish parties like yours.

            There are a LOT of places that can handle this request. Are you looking for any particular style of cuisine?

              Something not to specific on one cuisine. I guess American would be the best description.
