Hi, all --
I'm trying to plan my daughter's christening party for August and am trying to decide if I want to do it at home or in a restaurant. We'll have 15-20 guests, and the christening is in Union Square. If we opt to do it out, it would be great if it was in Cambridge/Someville. Looking for something not too pricey but still special feeling, someplace with a private area, and someplace that feels appropriate for a christening in the middle of summer (read: not too dark and gloomy). Some options I've thought of but likely won't workl:
Oleana - too pricey
Gargoyle's - too dark
Blue room - maybe, but I'm not sure if they'll do an afternoon seating after their brunch
Upstairs on the Sq - too pricey and parking difficult
Any thoughts would be much appreciated!! Thank you!
