Hello, every year, a group of friends gets together and it’s a large group — usually about 12 or more adults and 5-7 kids all under the age of 10. We usually go to the Strand Smokehouse in Astoria brunch or lunchtime -we go there because the place is huge and there’s an outdoor space where the kids can run, and the kids don’t get in anyone’s way. The Issue is that I’m not a huge fan of the food, And since I am the one arranging this get together, I was thinking of choosing somewhere that I will enjoy a little more.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a very spacious place that preferably has outdoor space? Queens is good because it is accessible to the entire group, but honestly, I would consider anywhere within the boroughs. Thanks for your help!
