Greetings! I'm hoping to find a venue that can host 20-25 people for either a fixed price lunch or a later afternoon cocktail hour (prosecco and rose style) for less than $35 pp. It's a baby shower event, on a tight budget, that we prefer to keep social so we'd love a space or arrangement that leaves people free to walk around and socialize throughout the duration (e.g. buffet or walking servers etc as opposed to assigned seating).
I've looked into Bobo and City Winery thanks to other recommendations on Chow. Any others in this realm that you can think of?
The mom to be is a professional foodie and the dad to be is a fruit/veg farmer so they really love all things equating to good food and drink and hope to make this baby shower a delicious- but simple- event for their guests. Something fancy is not their style... we'd even entertain going to BK for the right space although Manhattan would be more convenient.
Thanks for your thoughts!
