    Are you looking for a place that offers a brunch buffet, or a plated meal from selections available with beverage(s) included?......or just a place to have a private affair where you make your own menu?

      in ridgewood there are several choices
      dim sum dynasty has a private room if you wish and they have the dim sum carts as well as a menu
      you couldnt possibly spend 35 bucks there and its byob

      also in ridgewood is a mano for insanely good naples style pizza as well as pasta and fish off the charts great gelato and cookies and cakes for dessert also byob

      also its well within your price range

      more traditional is winberie for omelletes etc etc well priced and pretty

      enjoy and invite me i am hungry

        Look at Napa Valley Grille...yes, it is in the Garden State Plaza mall, but they do private parties well and have a nice brunch menu.
        It also has much more of a dining ambience than the Ridgewood choices.

          I went to a party there and while the place was nice the nightmare time all the guests had finding parking made it NOT worth it!

          Check out Biagio's in Paramus, Bacari Grill in Washington Township, Que Pasta in Saddle Brook

          Re: Napa Valley Grille: If the party is on a Sunday, the stores in the mall are closed and there is no problem parking...if not on Sunday, there is valet parking in case the mall is crowded.

            does the restaurant offer free or reduced value parking? otherwise it's 10 dollars.
