Looking for restaurant/venue suggestions for a 60th birthday party in Towson/N. Balt.Cnty area

I am originally from Baltimore but living out of state and somewhat out of tune with the restaurant scene these days.

Am looking for a fun location for my mother's 60th birthday party in late summer. Probably somewhere between 30 to 40 people and, it being summer in Baltimore, will need to have air-conditioned indoor space. As far as location, am thinking Towson/Cockeysville/Hunt Valley area as many will be coming from Harford County and PA.

I'd like to keep it somewhat reasonable price wise -- but she only turns 60 once, right? I have read many things on this board suggesting the Woodberry Kitchen. Would others agree this is a place to have a party of this nature? (Age range will be 25 - 80)

Thanks for any suggestions!!!

  1. Woodberry Kitchen is fantastic, but I would have a hard time picturing 30-40 people having a party there. Close to that area with decent food and large dining space is Mt. Washington Tavern. We also did a 50th birthday party for my Dad at Liberatore's in Timonium. Good Italian food! Also, check out Christopher Daniel in Timonium. I haven't been in a while, but it was fantastic the last time we were there. Hope this helps!

      If the food at Mt W Tavern was decent, that was on a good day -- that's about the best it will get there.

        Woodberry Kitchen does have the nice room up front that, I think, can be used for private parties. 30-40 would be prefect in that space.

          We've never been disappointed at Woodberry Kitchen, and I agree that the front room would be perfect for a pary of that size. I imagine that they would work with you to set a menu. in your price range. A bit south of what you want, but convenient off 83!

      2. Cafe Troia in Towson could be a good option. They have private rooms and good quality Italian. It's a family-owned and run restaurant, which I always consider a plus. http://www.cafetroia.com/

        As for Woodberry, I would imagine it would be hard to keep the price of a party there reasonable.

          Having just eaten at Cafe Troia I would have to say the same about keeping the price there reasonable.

        2. Woodberry is good and I think they do private parties, but the price might be very expensive. What about Gertrude's?

          1. You may want to contact Patrick's in the Cockeysville area. I dined there last Fall and had a very favorable experience, both in food and atmosphere.

            My only concern on your behalf is that I'm not certain that the restaurant can accommodate the number of people you are suggesting. But, do look into it. The menu is very reasonably priced and covers enough options for most palates. FoiGras

            1. We had my mother's 60th at Bluestone. The food is decent and the atmosphere is nice. I think they might have space upstairs for larger parties (we were about 20).
