Looking for a Restaurant in Central and Northern NJ for a Baby Shower...Please help

I'm looking for a wonderful restaurant in central or northern NJ to host a baby shower for 50 people. The event will be for lunch on a Saturday/Sunday in June. Ideally I am looking for a beautiful location (maybe even outdoor space) that will accomodate 50 people in a private room or even rent the entire restaurant...Budget is anywhere from $40-$50 per person...Food must be wonderful, atmosphere bright and lovely to shower the "mom to be"...Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...Thank you!

      1. We hosted a birthday party in Garlic Rose in downtown Cranford, which has a very nice private room downstairs from the restaurant. It is big enough to hold the number of people you will be inviting, and also has a bar. They offer good menu options, the price was reasonable and totally within your budget, and the food is excellent.

        1. Madeline's on Vosseler in Bound Brook has a few rooms for this type of event, one of which is a lovely greenhouse room.

          1. I had my wife's baby shower at Restaurant Nicholas arguably the finest restaurant in NJ. The daytime private party prices were within your budget in 2010 before my little guy was born. I believe the price per person included wine. I would give them a call.

              If you don't mind coming to Hoboken (yes, it IS northern NJ) Amanda's fits the bill. It is a lovely restaurant with very good food. I know they host many baby showers. The atmosphere is very civilized without being pretentious.
