I am putting together an event for 100-150 people and I wanted to get my fellow chowhounds' opinions on a restaurant in South End/Chinatown/Downtown with the following qualities:
1) Can hold that many people, with an adequate stage area for performances (enough room for 10 performers);
2) Food at about $20-35 a head, buffet style (since I get to pick the place, I would love to find somewhere tasty within the price range);
3) Ideally with a T station and parking nearby;
4) If any of these places have a good house band that would be the cherry on top, but it's not necessary.
So far I have thought of Chau Chow City, Estelle's, Sophia's, Slades, and Bob the Chef's. I would welcome thoughts on these and any other suggestions, ncluding some of the newer places in the south end that I haven't been to yet.
