Large scale take out options for party

WSfoodie | Jan 22, 201708:16 AM     2

We are hosting a small party (15-20 people) for a family birthday. We were excited to order and serve Buena Onda's wonderful empanadas and salad to our guests. Unfortunately, we just learned they are closed on Monday, the day of the party.

Does anyone have other suggestions for large scale take out options for a party? We want it to be a substantial dinner, not just finger food/apps, but also something easy enough to eat since we don't have a table big enough to all sit together at once. We also need something relatively kid friendly since we will have five guests under the age of 10.

We want something different than pizza or sandwiches which has been our go to for a party like this. I did a little online research and it looks like Zaytoon and some mexican restuarants have options. Anyone have personal experience with these or other options to suggest?

Thank you in advance!
