Sunday luncheon in North Jersey

I am looking for a restaurant to host a Sunday luncheon in April for about 100 people. I would love a cool loungy type atmosphere- maybe with a big bar and comfy seating for a great cocktail hour first. Thanks!

  1. ...i was tempted to respond, "yeah, well good luck with that" as finding a place in north jersey that can host a number of people, can sell alcohol, has good food and has a cool vibe is quite the CHALLENGE (i can't even fathom adding comfy seating to the list) The only 2 places I can think of happen to be upscale greek: Axia in Tenafly and Nisi Estuario in Englewood....Both have liquor licenses, very good food, and if I'm not mistaken, will close for private parties (esp. on a sunday).
    Good luck and let us know what you decide.

    AXIA Taverna
    18 Piermont Rd, Tenafly, NJ 07670

    Nisi Estiatorio
    90 Grand Avenue, Englewood, NJ 07631

    1. You might want to look into the Diva Lounge in Montclair

      1. you might try Bistro 55 in Rochelle Park or Fire&Oak in Montvale.

        1. Nisi was the first place that came to mind.

          1. Bacari Grill in Wash Twp came to mind-- a gorgeous environment, a big bar, enough room to accommodate. The reviews on the food are sometimes mixed, but for a luncheon it should be acceptable. It does meet all your criteria.
