I'm looking for suggestions for restaurants (preferably downtown, but it truly doesn't matter) that can accommodate and take reservations for a party of 30-40.
We're an odd mix of tourists and locals, big spenders and cheapskates, Chowhounds and picky eaters. No one wants to spend over $40/person, alcohol included.
Unfortunately, anything vaguely "ethnic" (no Indian, Thai, sushi, etc.) has already been ruled out by the aforementioned picky eaters, and as a group, we can hardly agree on price, much less place. I'm a bit at the end of my rope and need Chowhound help.
Any ideas would be appreciated. Any ideas with worthwhile food would be greatly appreciated.
