Large family dinner mid November- ? near Granville Island
Similar to a request I put out 3 or 4 years ago, looking for somewhere for a Saturday night in November which could accommodate about 22 adults, 4 or 5 kids aged 2-7, and a couple of newborns. Complication is at least one vegan. Doing Indian at Maurya on the Friday and wondered about somewhere Italian or similar that would be reasonable price (familiar with both La Buca and La Quercia and like them but this ain't their kind of scene I suspect). My wife and I have gone to Grub several times and loved it (and they do have vegan) but not sure if they would rent out pretty much the whole place for a Saturday.
Advice much appreciated.
If you and your family like Greek food, Apollonia may be able to book their whole space for you that night:
Cats Social House (part of Brown Group) maybe work:
If a boisterous Chinese banquet works for you (22 adults & all kiddos can be divvied up comfortably over three tables): http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/14/180658/restaurant/Fairview/Fortune-Garden-Vancouver
Or Szechuan: http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/14/181762...
Not the most amazing food but serviceable and kid friendly near GIsle = Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co (two locations, you don't want the one on Main obvi). They seem to be able to do large tables and there are two sides to the place so maybe you could take over one. You'd need to call about vegan but they are pretty focused on their ingredients so I wouldn't be surprised if they could accommodate.
