I think Sarabeth's would be nice, but a bit cramped.
I checked Terrace in the Sky- it closed!
I also called x2O in yonkers- no brunch on saturday.
I have been to Calle Ocho (only at the old location) and will put in a call. Thanks.
Waiting to hear back from Normas. Thanks!

Brunch for 15ppl Saturday under 60 dollars per person

Please help me pick a brunch spot for 15 people for my parents 50th wedding anniversary.
Requirements:
- comfortably fit 15 ppl at one table (dad is a big guy and likes to stretch out)
- anywhere in manhattan or westchester
- priced with everything (including tax and tip, and drinks) no more than 60 dollars per person
- serves brunch on saturday
- a buffet would be good for price, but not necessary
- large portions a plus
- not too fussy on the presentation

So far in the running are Norma's and Ouest

Any ideas? Thank you chowhounders.

Restaurant recs for 2 gourmets, 2 kids, 1 vegetarian - help!

Let me clarify that point. One child is a little over 2 years old, the other is 10 months old. The younger one won't be eating much. The older one is not too picky.

I need a recommendation for next week, anywhere in Philly! We need a restaurant we can tolerate, and will also tolerate us!

We have a group of 6 -
2 foodies (almost, but not quite food snobs)
2 kids (2 years and 10 months)
1 pescatarian
1 guy who is easy to please

We are willing to eat early. Please help!
