60th Birthday Luncheon for about 12

Within our women's group, 4 of us are turning 60 within weeks of the end of January. We're looking for a fun place to celebrate and are open to all cuisines. We would like to keep the price under $50 per person. Montclair is always great, but we're willing to travel to other Essex locations or Bergen, Passaic, Hudson, Morris ...

  1. If you are willing to travel, Mykonos Taverna, on Broadway at the Border where Elmwood Park meets Fair lawn iswonderful. The food is delicious, and the service very attentive. The New York Times reviewed it 2 weeks ago and gave it a glowing review. It's a great place to share appetizers, the salads are very large, and there are a variety of entrees.
    By the way, happy early birthday.

      I agree Mykonos Taverna is a nice spot and would be nice for a Birthday dinner. It isn't big so I would be sure to call and reserve soon.
      Axia in Tenefly is another great Greek option.
      Bistro 55 on Route 17 in Rochelle Park is good and can be great to sit at the bar and grab a drink/ socialize after dinner.

    2. Cafe Matisse is one of my favorite restaurants. I looked at their website to check on lunch and don't see it listed but I am almost certain they do it - and it is a BYOB so it cuts on the cost. Atmosphere, service, and food --- all very special!

      1. My favorite place for a special occasion is Le Prete on Washington Ave. in BellevilleNJ. The same family that ownes 15 Fox Place in Jersey City, the food tastes like Nonna is cooking in the kitchen. The dining room is elegant with lovely place settings. Service is impeccable. I'm sure if you contact them, $50. is workable.

        1. The Montville Inn has a great room downstairs that would be fine for your group. With drinks, $50 might be a stretch, but it might be worth a call.
