I know it's a bit early, but in the planning stages for my daughter's graduation from a university in the New Haven area in the spring of 2012. Will likely "test drive" a couple of the choices once we have it narrowed down.
Looking for a relaxed, fun evening at a venue that will accommodate and attend to a group of 10-14 people. Don't want to break the bank BUT want a place that has great food, ambience and service (understand that all that comes with a price tag). Open to cuisine ideas (although my daughter's preference is Italian).
Would prefer to be within a half hour drive of New Haven but will consider ideas a bit farther.
Thanks for any and all suggestions - appreciate your help!!
