OMG! Need TEN recommendations!!

I submitted 18 suggestions to my husband's company. I ranked them in order of CH votes along with some additional suggestions. As soon as I know what is decided I will report back. It may be a few weeks, but I will definitely report back. I really appreciated the input.

I'm sorry. They offer a one day pass and markup the purchase?

I got the 1 day pass in the mail. I will check it probably next weekend. I am a Musikfest widow until Sunday. The hubs is a stage manager for the event. And I do not listen to his complaints about being tired!

Grub Burger Bar montgomeryville

No Carbs. I eyed the one in Willow Grove when I went past there a few weeks ago, but I haven't been back over there. I am looking forward to checking it out!

I am laughing myself! I just can't believe my husband's company asked me to do this. I will be in the city for the event, But this is crazy!

We will. BYO restaurants will not be on the list. There are way too many people to consider for this event.

I would say sharing and small plates are out. Many of these people have not dined together.

All restaurants must be in the city. There are meetings and additional festivities at the convention center.

There will be no interest in BYO. Every restaurant needs to be full service.

It isn't 10 dinners in 10 days. It is 10 dinners for multiple groups of people over 3 days.

Yes. There will be car service for every meal. Doesn't matter where they go in the city.

It could be anywhere from 4 to 20 at any given meal. The guests will vary for each meal.

Back to you guys! My husband's company is already booking Vetri. The pressure is on for me. They want TEN Best of the BEST in the city. I had no idea I would be asked for more. I am way out of my league here. The company will be booking at least 10 restos over two to three weekdays in October. I know I can count on you! We will be staying at the Marriott with car service. This is a day I wish I lived back in Maine!

October in the City

My husband's company is hosting a VIP dinner in the city 10/18, a Sunday, for 20 people. I don't get to the city regularly and I need suggestions. I am talking BIG TIME VIP guests. Everyone will be staying at the Marriott and we will have limousine service. I have been asked for suggestions. Mostly because I am part of this group! I am a tad nervous. In the past we have done Italian and steakhouse (in other areas of the country). You guys have helped me out for other company functions and I need your help for this event! Needs to be Amazing food and Service, Completely First Class!! Thank you so much!!

Brick and Barrel - Maple Glen

This is what will replace Allegro Grill. It has taken quite some time, but I see they are hiring, so maybe soon. It would be nice to have something decent so close to home!

Updates on Mainland Inn?

Well, that's sad! I am not on here as much as I used to be, but I read what's going on when I can. cgarner is still around. She and her husband attended the Blackfish dinner a few years back. I guess we need to meet some new hounds!

Amis...cazzo!

I am not sure the OP is looking for alternate dining suggestions.

Macaroni Grill out - PJ's Pour House in

I don't go up to Montgomeryville on a regular basis, but noticed yesterday that Macaroni Grill has closed.

Allegro Grill-Maple Glen

Does anyone know what is going on with Allegro Grill? I noticed it closed a couple of weeks ago. There was s sign out front saying they would reopen that Thursday, but it didn't happen. On my way home yesterday I noticed they had an alcohol application in the window.

Personally, I didn't care for the restaurant. It would be nice to have a quality restaurant in the area. We stopped there about a month ago because it is close to home. My husband ordered the penne vodka and it was fine. I ordered the chilean sea bass special, which had a lemon butter sauce that was inedible. Unless you like the taste of straight salty lemon juice. After that visit, we said never again.

Another nice meal at Kinnaree in Horsham

We were told it is their policy not to take returned food off the check. I was not rude about returning the appetizer. I explained that it was cold and didn't live up to the description on the menu. It was the Fricassee of Mushrooms. There was no hint of marsala and no seasoning to speak of. The server walked away with the dish without asking if I would like to select another appetizer. He came back with our entrees. My husband got their Pad Thai, which he always ordered and really liked. I got the duck, which was slightly overcooked and a bit on the dry side. The flavor was pretty good. We went there at least once a month. If the owner is commenting that business is slow, there must be a reason. We went to Pho & More yesterday and almost had to wait for a table at 12:00 for lunch.

Another nice meal at Kinnaree in Horsham

We used to go there, but stopped going after I returned an appetizer that was tasteless and cold and they refused to take the item off our check. It's a shame because it is less than 10 minutes away.

As do I.
