group dinner suggestion: 50 people under $50 pp

I need some suggestion. Ideally within 5-mile radius from downtown area, not too casual, for 50 people under $50 pp (including tips and tax and at most one glass of wine pp). It will be better if there is a private room.

Thank you.

  1. Benjy's! Washington or Rice Location ( Washington is more recent I believe) Upstairs lounge is perfect for a small private event. Delicate and clean menu though, big eaters may not have their appetities satisfied.

      Thanks! this is a hard task. Our dinner is on a Friday. I called around a few places. Most have a required minimum over the budget. Any other suggestion?

    2. We have had seminars at Pappa's Seafood House and they have a private room. And they have varying menues ranging from $23pp and up but it does not include alcohol. Food has always been good. You can probably get out of there for under $50 and they have locations around the city.

        I am reporting back.
        We went to Backstreet Café. They had a few prix-fixe menu at different price points to choose from.
        Everything went very well.
