At my work we take turns catering a weekly happy hour. My turn is fast-approaching and I want to do something different and exceedingly tasty.
- feed 20 people - for many it will be dinner
- not too expensive ($200-300 for the food)
- i can do pick-up if they don't deliver, and could do a little on-site prep work if necessary (we have a real kitchen)
- things that have been done recently and that I want to avoid (Tapas, Thai, Greek, Indian, Mexican, sushi and BBQ)
A few ideas I've gleaned from searching chowhound include Rami's (Brookline), Reef Cafe (Allston), La Mamma's (Allston - I was thinking for empanadas) or La Papusa (JP - again for empanadas, the papusas sound too messy). If you have experience with any of these places or ideas of which food would be best I welcome any comments.
Hopefully I'll go on a bit of a crawl this weekend to check out some of your rec's.
