Restaurant with private room at jersey shore
We are looking to have a baptism lunch or dinner for about 50 people in June. We would like to have it in the spring lake/manasquan or asbury park area. Not really to picky on type of food but Italian is always a nice option. any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
The upstairs at Stella is a great space and the food, at least in the dining room, is a pretty solid B/B+. Otherwise in AP, there is also Trinity & the Pope (New Orleansy) that has a cool upstairs space as well. Both have liquor licenses.
In Sea Girt part of Wall, Scarborough Fair (New American) has some private rooms available, good food, and booze.
Another thing to consider is the fact that before the main summer season, i.e., pre-July 4th, many of the BYO's are willing to do lunch/afternoon parties. For example, I know folks who have had events at places like Firefly (Manasquan) or Black Trumpet (Spring Lake). Both serve New American style fare.
