Planning a Baby Shower in Union NJ, but I live in California!

Looking to host a jack &jill baby shower in or around Union NJ. MY grandma cannot climb stairs, so that's the only caveat on "where." Mainly looking for a location that will have a private room, and be able to cater some food.

I've seen a few listings that mention the following places, but I don't know the area well enough. Does anyone have suggestions on where to go, or if any of the following will suffice?

Old Mansion, Elizabeth, NJ
Blvd 572, Kenilworth, NJ
Mario Tuto, Union, NJ
Cioffi, Union, NJ
Suburban Country Club , Union , NJ

Thank you!

  1. I've heard really good things about Mario's - although I've never been so I can't comment on the stairs. I also really like Cioffi's, although I never did a function there. But growing up in Union, I can't even count the number of pizza's and dinners that I've had.

    I had my baby shower at the Kenilworth Inn - not bad, and if you ask for the room on the main floor you won't have to worry about stairs.

    We did my sister's shower at Costa's in Roselle Park which meets all your criteria.

    1. Pretty sure that only private room at Blvd 572 is upstairs. Great restaurant, though.

      1. My friend and her family live far away, but still plan all of their family events at Benitos in Union. I was threre one time, and would recommend it for a baby shower. They have a private room as well.
