Macondo good for casual birthday get-together?

Hi everyone - am having a casual birthday gathering on Monday (Labor Day) of between 6 and 10 people. because of the holiday I expect a certain amount of flakiness.I want people to be able to eat or not as they wish - I didn't want to commit everyone to dinner. I wanted Spitzer's Corner first but they only take reservations for 12 or more. So I picked Macondo. Good choice? any alternates I am forgetting?
