Baptism - private dining for about 100-125

Hi everyone, I am looking for some ideas for a baptism lunch for about 100-125, preferably in the North York area as the church is at Bayview and 401. I'd like to spend no more than $50 a person, although it would be fantastic to spend less than that.
I'm open to any suggestions! Thanks in advance for your time!

  1. I was at an event many years ago, and I think it was held at All Saints Multicultural Centre. I remember it was on Bayview Ave, just south of Finch, on the east side.

    3125 Bayview Ave

      Have they found a caterer yet? Last I heard (~8 months ago or so) they were without.

    2. I'm not aware of a place near Bayview & the 401 that could accommodate 125 people @ $50 per plate, but the Spirale Banquet Hall on Don Mills Road north of Eglinton might be able to provide a lunch quote for around $50pp. Spirale is a 10-15 minute drive from Bayview and the 401.

      Another option would be to consider one of the larger Chinese restaurants on Steeles or Hwy 7.

      What kind of food do you want to serve to your guests?

        I guess I'd like to serve Mediteranean, French.....something along those lines...
        I'll check out Spirale, thanks!
