We're looking for a venue for small group lunch on Friday for about 10 people. We'll be loud, but not disruptive. (We're celebrating the end of a year-long job.) We're trying to find a back room or an area where we won't be too annoying to other diners.
Also, we'd prefer to order off the menu. We don't need a formal private dining event.
Also, we all love food, but we have a couple people with food allergies, so we'll need a place that's accommodating or has a broadish menu.
RUSH STREET (private room but limited lunch menu)
AKASHA (no private area)
WESTSIDE TAVERN (Massive and probably won't be mobbed for lunch.)
WATERLOO AND CITY
FORD'S FILLING STATION
Suggestions? Previous experience? Thanks!
