Baptism Party in Monmouth County

Any suggestions? Looking for a space that can accomodate around 30 people... Any one have any favorites in the Monmouth County (Matawan) area? Keep in mind children will be present so a private room is preferred, although not neccessary... Party would be on a Sunday afternoon, so brunch would be appropriate. We are open to all cuisine, just needs to be well executed! We are pretty open in terms of cost, quality is a must!

  1. SamVera, in Marlboro, serves very good traditional Italian food. They have private facilities upstairs, but I don't know how many people can be accommodated.

    1. I've had a luncheon at Trinity in Keyport and am planning another one in December we were so impressed. They are not open for lunch so we've had the entire place to ourselves. The minimum guest count is 25 people. The place is beautiful (inside a restored church) and the food is outstanding.

        I couldn't agree with dani more. There is not another place in Monmouth County that has both space for private parties and that level of cuisine. Besides, it's a converted church -- what could be better for a baptism party?

          Third recommendation for Trinity!
          They will work with you on menu for guests of all ages.

          I can't tell you how psyched I am to read these posts ... I'm throwing a party at Trinity this weekend. Will report on the event on the Trinity thread.
