Any ideas for large groups in/around Hartford?
Trying to help out a friend who's bringing a bus trip to a show at the Bushnell and is looking for a restaurant nearby that could handle a large group (between 40 and 50) if given sufficient notice. I'm not familiar with the downtown dining scene, so I can't help. Anyone have any ideas??
It's a large cavernous place with a huge parking lot. It's right niext to A Dong, a huge Asian grocery store. It's specialty is Pho--a Vietnamese soup. But there are a lot of other Vietnamese items on the menu. It's not too far from the Bushnell.

Here are a few more possibiliites
Costa Del Sol is minutes away on Franklin Ave. and has a room that would accomodate a group your size. Pepe is a great guy and although we have not done a large party there, we have been to one and it was great.
O'Porto also has something similar and is also close by on Park St. We did both a large and small event at O'Porto and were very pleased with the food, service, and price.
