Hi everyone! I'm a newbie to Chowhound but have peeked in on many of your posts in the past. I'm looking for something suitable for a moderate-sized group, maybe eight? Or more? The people coming are not gourmets, but they're not rubes either. But because one person may be footing the bill for everyone, I thought it best to go somewhere moderately priced. Anyone have any bright ideas? I'm turning up a bunch of franchises (like Maggiano's, to which I have never been) and mom-and-pop places that I am wary of gambling on at everyone else's expense. Thanks in advance for your recommendations!
