I'm from Philadelphia and am trying to plan a baby shower in late July on Long Island for my sister. I'm completely unfamiliar with Long Island and am hoping some chowhounds can provide me with suggestions for potential restaurant (or other event space) locations to have this event. We are aiming for either a Saturday or Sunday afternoon event, so it will likely be a brunch, lunch, or perhaps tea. I'd like to keep the cost of food at $30 or less per person and the space would only need to accommodate a maximum of 20 people While I guess it would be nice for the location to serve alcohol I'm not sure that this is necessary. Since I'm unfamiliar with the area the best I can say is that we'd like to be within about 30 minutes (keeping weekend traffic in mind) of East Setauket. Thank you in advance for any suggestions!
p.s. I should add that the mother-to-be is a vegetarian eating very little seafood at this point, so having some decent vegetarian options would be ideal.
