Good place near Palo Alto for a large group? (20-30 ppl)

Not sure they have the kind of space we're looking for - their upstairs is a little bit too spread out, isn't it?

Thanks, Vis. Evvia & Tamarine are definitely too expensive, but I've got calls in to the other 3, so hopefully one will work out!

Hello SF Chowhounders,

I'm coming in from Chicago for a business recruiting visit at Stanford, and need a place to take applicants / candidates for a group dinner not too far from campus. Any advice on restaurants that might have appropriate spaces, and fit within my budget? (~60/person, or else my compliance folks will get uncomfortable!) Type of food not too important (it's a free meal for them, after all), but I'd prefer some place that's at least edible for my own selfish sake.

Thanks for your help!

Help! Rehearsal Dinner - 100+, Montgomery Co.

Thanks to you both!

We checked out the William Penn Inn - very nice place, but we're getting married the Sunday of Labor Day weekend '09. So, with the rehearsal on a Saturday, a place like that is looking to host a wedding or something fancier that night...

We'll look at Lai Lai and Bourbon, and report back if they work.

(and of course, still accepting any other suggestions!)

Help! Rehearsal Dinner - 100+, Montgomery Co.

Hello,

Two SF Bay Area Chowhounds getting married at Normandy Farm in Blue Bell (so the grandparents don't have to fly to be with us). Unfortunately, that means all of our guests will be coming in from out of town, and we'd like to feed them the night before.

Any recommendations for cost-effective dinner options? (under 30/person for food) Are there any BYOs outside the city? (we might have some extra room in the budget for wine/beer.) We're up for casual sit-down, family-style, buffet, catering hall, whatever, as long as it's tasty. Within a 30 min drive of Blue Bell is ideal, but we're flexible there.

Recommendations from other sources get panned here: Gen Lafayette Inn, Solaris Grille, etc., and the places that we've seen in positive posts seem either too small or too pricey...

Thanks in advance!

Help! - Large Group Dinners in London / Dublin

Hello,

I'm helping to lead a group of ~30 business school students from California on a week-long trip to London and Dublin.

With this large a group, and a limited budget (~L20-30 per person, not including alcohol) are there any places that will feed us well? Or do we have to just grin and bear it, and try to have as many smaller-group dinners as possible?

Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer,
LittleEgg
