Brunch (jazz?) for 12+ Boston/Metrowest

stupiddog | Mar 15, 200801:22 PM

So we are finally getting around to celebrating my mother in law's 70th Birthday. She wants to have a brunch and asked her friends and came up with Terry's Diner in Framingham, East Coast Grill & the Living Room. (I think she just asked her friends-the choices seem odd.) I don't think East Coast is a great fit, and if we are going into Cambridge we could do the Blue Room, but I think it is hard to set up a large table there and still talk to people. She's a jazz singer, so it would be nice to have a jazz brunch, so I guess Ryles is a possibility, but I've never had their brunch. We located in Stow, sort of north/west, so places out here would be possible. J's at Nashoba winery has a great brunch and right next door. We can get a private room, although a little pricey. So here is my want/ need list. I'm really out of touch with the brunch scene (having 2 preschoolers and all...)

-Can seat 12+ easily and still hold a conversation (reservations our must, no standing in line)
-Jazz music would be nice, but hat might give problems to the conversation thing
-Not too pricey, we can't afford to pay for everyone & would like it to be less than$20 (yes, know the blue room is more.)
-Metrowest would be good, or parking if in town for the suburbanites
-Need to at least be able to get a Mimosa
-Would be nice to bring the grandkids (1 1/2 and 5)
-Oh yeah, decent food!

I'm really coming up empty here, hope you all can help!
