Dinner for 40 in CC

phillybakingqueen Jan 31, 2010 02:07 PM

I am hosting a dinner for 40 (including 10 kids) in April. Looking for a decent place in walking distance of 17th and Sansom. Would like to spend about $50 per person. Any ideas?

Thanks :)

    A couple spots to look into: Branzino is right near you. Lee How Fook in Chinatown has a great private room in the back with space for that many. Both have great food, are BYOB, and have their private party menus online.

        Maggianos is also not bad. Plenty of food, especially food that might appeal to the kids, and a private room. Very convenient to train transpotation as well.

        You might try Upstairs at DiBruno Bros on Chestnut btwn 17th and 18th. They rent out and cater in their upstairs space. BYOB, Italian food mostly.
