So, I'm going with brazilian food for the rehearsal - 25 people at Muqueca on Cambridge St - very chowhound. But now I need a place for 60 people roughly, Arlington/Cambridge/Somerville/Allston, possibly boston.
Don't want chinese. One family is from taiwan. In fact, no asian, if we can avoid it. Korean might make it under the wire. Prefer something very chowhound... inexpensive, not foodie, authentically delicious. The bride is a professional cook at a top fine dining place in boston - but doesn't have any ideas for this either.
Suggestions? Be creative. African, European, regional, middle eastern?
