Reservation for 25-30 in Park Slope
Hi. I've been trying to think of places in the Slope that can handle a big group for dinner on a Friday night. I was all set to go to Scottadito (conveniently close to parking garages for those driving), but was informed that for parties that size they only do family-style banquet menus, which I would like to avoid for price and variety reasons.
We'd like to keep the meal relatively inexpensive. I'd say a place like Blue Ribbon would be the absolute top of our price range. Japanese may be too adventurous for some out-of-town eaters.
So what's out there that's big enough the handle our dinner? Blue Ribbon? Two Boots?
Why would you go to Two Boots for a la carte rather than have family style @ Scottaditto?
I had my rehearsal dinner @ Scottaditto in the back room with about 20-30 people and had a very good time with a nice range of family-style portioned food.
In Windsor Terrace, Fez Cafe (continental/Moroccan) can handle large groups in their backyard tent.
Try Palo Santo, we've talked to them about a similar sized group and they were very accomodating. Plus I really like the restaurant
greenermjr: It boils down to cost and variety. I wanted to do Scottadito because their pasta and entrees range from $8-$24. I'm going to have foodies, meat & potatoes people, and vegetarians attending, so the variety we'd get from ordering off of the menu would have been nice. Scottadito's family-style prices go from $49-$75. The middle-tiered menu is $59, which with tax and tip would be $75pp before wine. That's two to three times what I usually spend for food at Scottadito and too expensive for my crowd.
