New here and had a question (Jersey girl originally but I've been away for the past 6 years, going to start working in NJ soon):
I'm trying to host a party of ~18 people (inviting 24 and thinking some may not show or reply to my invite). I'm trying to go for a low-key, casual place where we can a bite to eat since we're all meeting each other for the first time (we're going to start working together later this month and I figured we should try to get acquainted somewhat).
So I guess ideally I'm looking for a place where I can say, "Hey, I have a reservation here for 18 people at 6:30pm and we can hang at the bar beforehand." I'm really not familiar with New Brunswick restaurants. Was thinking Old Man Rafferty's but I am open to any an all suggestions. Thank you!
