Some friends of mine are looking for a restaurant to host a series of recruiting dinners (for interviewees for an academic program). Each dinner would have about 20 people and they have a budget limit of $50 a head. Dinners would be on Tuesday nights and there would not be a lot of alcohol consumed (being interviews).
They are looking for something (a) within a reasonable walk from Charles/MGH T or close by on the Red Line, (b) with either a private dining room or a reasonably quiet space so folks can talk to each other, and (c) interesting or at least good food - they want to impress the guests.
Any good suggestions? We have been brainstorming on places like the Blue Room and Upstairs at the Square, but would love other recommendations.
