Delicious appetizers for 21st Birthday Party for 35 in Cambridge or surrounds
You were all helpful last year in your suggestions for my son's 20th party (we went to Sel de La Terre in Boston - 15 of us and had fun - although had to go to Brookline for a Birthday cake!)
So I'm back this year for his 21st birthday. We want to host about 35-40 of his friends and their parents (in town for a school event) at a fun place that has decent food. We are thinking heavy appetizers and drinks either in Cambridge or fairly close by or easy to get to.
I have spoken with
Russell Tavern (food quality??)
and also Harvard INN (thinking it might be too institutional and dull.)
Any other suggestions???
By the way I also loved the lobster roll at Neptune's - a memorable experience for a girl from LA!
Thank you for your help!
In the Kendall Square area. All with parking (garage and street) nearby and not far from the T
Cambridge Brewing Company
Also in Kendall there are some newer restaurants that might work for you. Area Four, Catalyst, and Meadhall.
Thank you for the suggestions. Catalyst sounds especially interesting - too bad they don't have any pictures on their website. 30 foot floor to ceiling windows sounds more stimulating than the basement room of Russell House. Their food sounds delicious. I'll have to add it to my lists of restaurants to visit whether or not we go for the party. I'll call tomorrow.
My friends and I just had our 21st Birthday at OM and it was great! There second floor has floor to ceiling windows all along the front. We did a bunch of appetizers and drinks on the second floor. They had a DJ at 1030 that was great as well.
