Against all odds, my brother will be turning 50 at the end of April, and we (his 5 siblings and others) would love to do something nice for him. But we are a crowd, at least 12, perhaps as many as 16. The ideal would be someplace we could linger, a good meal and drink, a bit of atmosphere (maybe a fireplace? maybe a piano?) His birthday is a Saturday night, so we will need to deal with the weekend crowds.
He actually lives in Kittery Point, so we're open to anything in the area, but off season my guess is we'll end up in Portsmouth, hmmm?
This brother truly deserves a little spoiling, so please, 'Hounds, help us out?
