Hi all. I'm trying to organize a friend's birthday dinner and my brain is failing to come up with enough options, so I thought I'd turn to the experts.
I need a place that can handle a party of between 10-15 people, preferably all at one big table. It also needs to be relatively cheap -- no more than 35-40 dollars a person. Preferably accessible to both T and parking, and most of the people are on the north side of the river, so I'm thinking Cambridge or Somerville, not downtown Boston. The food should be good, of course, but it doesn't necessarily need to be *chowhound-good*, if you know what I mean -- price, atmosphere, and location are the more important criteria for this dinner.
I'm considering the Penang in Harvard Sq, but I've only been to the one downtown -- is the Hvd Sq. branch large enough for a big group?? Also considering Temple Bar and Jae's Inman Sq., but haven't been to either.
I'd love more ideas, as well as any thoughts people have on the above places. Many thanks in advance!
