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

      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.

            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.

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