HELP WANTED!!!! 25th Wedding Anniversary Party * I-93 / I-95 interchange

Hounds I’m trying to help a friend plan a 25th Wedding Anniversary party. When they first got married they didn’t have a party and now want to celebrate there 25 years together. So I would love suggestions as to the best place to have a memorable event. They had considered having an Odyssey dinner cruise but are fearful that some older guest may be hesitant to party on a boat. So I’m turning to the CH for great suggestions in the I93/I95 area, they have lots of family in Woburn.

Here are some details:
• Open to different type of food suggestions but NO Chinese
• NO buffet… limited menu
• Approximately 35 people
• Budget around $35 - $45 PP
• It would be nice to have a private room but not a requirement. Even a small restaurant that would close for the night for the event.
• Trying to plan it for October 19 or 20th

Hopefully I have provided enough detail to get some great suggestions. THANKS!!!

Best Italian Catering on the South Shore

Can anyone please recommend a good Italian Restaurant in the Weymouth, Hanover, Hingham, Norwell area that offers catering outside of the restaurant (either pick up or delivery). I am looking to cater approximately 50 people. Some suggestions have been Ecco and Reggio's in Weymouth, but I have received mixed reviews.

Euromart: I have died and gone to Poland

Went there yesterday in hopes to find the same wonderful experience you had. But my sandwich although delicious was not grilled. Instead I saw the counter person place the Kielbasa in the microwave. Will warn folks that it was difficult to communicate with the staff as there was a strong language barrier. I will definetly go back again.

Where is the BEST Pizza in Burlington, MA

Heading to Burlington on a weeknight to meet a friend for dinner. We are hopping to find a place with Great Pizza & Beer and some good conversation. Someone suggested Pizza Works but I don't know anything about this place? Are they what I'm looking for? If not where would be better?

I know most of your chowhounds know lots of great places in other surronding towns but my friend is really looking to stay in Burlington.

knife sharpening

Go to Bucci's in Stoneham for knife sharpening!!! They handle the accounts of many resturants and supermarket chains. My husband is a butcher and he brings our knifes their. He drops them off and picks them up in a couple of days. You don't want some hardware store sharpening these type of knifes you need someone that knows their trade.

Anything good to eat at the Villa Rosa in Quincy?

Well I did dine at the Villa Rosa and I can't think of anything good to say about it. The only thing the saved the night was the company. The rolls where hard and seemed like they where two days old. The chicken Parm seemed to be burned under neath. The atmosphere and decor is old. I will not return and I wouldn't suggest anyone else does ither.

I have eaten at the Chateau numerous times at their various locations and I have never been disapointed. Their family style take out is delicious and econimical. Favorite is the Toasted Raviolis with meatballs. They trough in a whole loaf of their delicious bread and a bottle of greated cheese so all you have to do is open the bad and enjoy.

10th Anniversary Dinner

The food at KroMel was incredible and the atmosphere was perfect for the occasion. With started off with the Cocunut shrimp. My husband had the Hanger steak with the peppercorn sauce and sweet mashed potatoes. I had a Pork loin with the apple sauce and mashed potatoes. It was so good!! I do understand what other posters ment by feeling that there where multiple people waiting on them as the hostess and the waitress both interacted with us. But I loved the attention. Best of all was when the dessert plates came out (Lava chocolate cake & Brownie cheese cake) they wrote on the edges of the plate "Happy Anniversary" in melted chocolate it was such a nice touch. We where surprised as we only mentioned our anniversary as the waitress asked us we whered headed over to the theater for the show. They also took a round of drinks off our tab. Classy place... thanks for the suggestion.

These are pretty strong opinions. Can I ask you to compare the Villa Rosa Vs. The Chateau in Andover or Norwood.

Looking for name of a mediterranean resturant in Horsham

I visited Horsham area several years ago. There I visited a Mediterranean resturant in Horsham it might have been on Tournament DR or very close by. I don't have the name of the resturant, but I had the best Veal Marsala with shrimp that I have never forgot it. Does anyone know the name of the place?? I would love to stop in their again.

Any good Brazilian Steakhouses in the Boston area

I like the one price buffet idea, where they come to the table with the scures of meat. Husband is a big eater and also happens to be a butcher. Don't need fancy white table cloths. I was born in Venezuela, S.A. and therefore appreciate the taste of meat cooked 'en la brasa'.

Any good Brazilian Steakhouses in the Boston area

I went to the Brazilian Grill in Hyannis and thought it was good. But way too far of a commute from Medford and they wait was too long. We had reservations for 8:30pm and still had to wait to be seated another 20 minutes and then the buffet was running out of serting dishes. I have heard good reviews of Gauchos in Manchester, NH. But again I'm looking for something closer. Who wants to drive that long after you eat so much.
