help for casual catered graduation dinner in providence!

I'm a senior at Brown, and my housemates and I are trying to figure out dining plans for the graduation weekend. We are planning on having a casual dinner with all of us and our families in our backyard one night (40-50 people). We are looking to do something pretty cheap a per person. I was thinking there might be a place on Federal Hill where we could get a bunch of salad/pasta (we have some vegetarians, too). We don't want a formally catered meal, but we don't want to cook, either.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

  1. I don't know about what the restaurants on Federal Hill can do, but I've always found the work of the Catering Gourmet (751-0355, out of the Pizza Gourmet business near Tortilla Flats on Hope) to be outstanding, and it seems like they can scale up or down to anything you'd want to do. I'd start there.
