I'm the point person for a close knit group of co-workers who live around the country and gather at the home office in Boston a couple of times a year. When everyone's together, we like to go out for dinner, but need to keep it under or around $30 per person. The Beer will be flowing too, which makes this harder.
The last two times we've gone to Peach Farm, which worked out very well, but we're looking for a change of venue this time, and while I'd be happy to just pick a different Chinatown restaurant, there have been requests for an alternate cuisine as well. Possibly Indian? The palates in this group range from very adventurous eaters to less adventurous eaters who are somewhat game, but no one who is super picky.
The group size is around 15 people, usually more like 12 or 13. It's a lot of fun to be around the big round table with this group, but that's not a requirement. Location preference would be Back Bay/ South End/ Theater District/ Chinatown, but I might be able to convince them to go farther afield if it promised to be really good.
I'm drawing a blank on other good places that can accommodate that size group at that price point in that area that aren't Chinese restaurants, so I'm hoping you all can help.
