Post Wedding Brunch - 20-25 People

Fellow Chowhounds - can you help me out? I have done a fair amount of research on this board, and see several restaurants have turned over, so I am hopeful someone will take pity on me and help me create a short list of restaurants to call today. I learned this morning, that my sister's wedding coordinator hasn't nailed down a place to go post a Sunday am wedding for about 25 people (Yes, this Sunday the 13th). I need to take the stress off of her - and find a place.

The wedding is Sunday am, near the 5000 block of Collins Street, and I am looking for a reasonably priced venue (less than $30pp) that could accommodate this group for brunch/lunch and some cocktails somewhere starting at 11am or 12pm.

The group will be a bit challenging, because we have some people willing to try different food, and some that are a little less comfortable and will seek out the "known entities" for them. I need to make sure that there are some "normal" options for them, but also some interesting things for the rest of the group. I am looking for non-chain restaurants and am open to a lunch or brunch menu -- and it would be over the top if the view was great and not inside a dark club atmosphere.

Can anyone offer some good recommendations?

Thanks in advance.

        I was unaware of this. Definitely an option...
