Dinner for a group of 50 in Newark

Can anyone recommend a place that can take 50 fifty people for dinner on a Saturday night? We will be staying by the airport.

    1. Don Pepe is a bit overrated (and overpriced, imo)...I far prefer the back room at Adega Grill, which could accommodate 50.

        When we lived in newark Year after year we always had a great time at Don Pepe's restaurant overated I think not......great food and service consistently?..yes.... I have yet to dine at Adega Grill....but it looks very nice...will have to try it sometime when in the area also.

      2. Fornos of Spain has great food and has party rooms, too. That's our fave spot when we go to things in Newark....can't miss.

          i second the Fornos love. every other restaurant in newark i have been to pales in comparison to the quality of the food and ambiance that you find there.

            Then you've never dined at Seabra's.

              Better food for sure, but not a place for 50 people....

                Why not? the back room sits 90+ diners and I have seen parties of close to 50 on several occasions. You just have to set a reservation and menu before hand so as not to slam the kitchen.

        2. Has Dinosaur BBQ opened yet?
