I'm currently planning a February dinner party for my company, and we're looking for someplace willing to do a fixed menu for about 15 people. We don't necessarily need a private room (though that is acceptable), but would like a good corner/alcove.
For price we're thinking about $40pp before alcohol and tip, though less is always OK, too. The other important factor is that I'd like this to be a fun evening, not too stuffy. This group doesn't have particularly gourmet tendencies, so solid (as opposed to extraordinary) food and fun atmosphere are important.
Location can be anywhere in Cambridge, Somerville or Boston. Some thoughts I had (none of which are 100% what I'm looking for but could be fine): Monica's in the N End, Dali in Cambridge, Eastern Standard.
Any additional ideas would be much appreciated!
