Thanks! Like I said, 40 to 75 people...and now he's fine-tuned it...every month, it will be between 60 and 80, mostly closer to the 80. I go to a monthly luncheon at Seasons, it's a buffet, and I can't really complain about the food. I haven't noticed any "slip" in food quality, at least not for my tastes. I also go to about 4 to 6 gala's there every year. 


I had never been to Biaggo's catering side of the facility -- until a few weeks ago, and once for a charity event. One, I never liked the food at the restaurant. Two, the luncheon food was "OK" but I could tell the host of the luncheon chose the "highest" options for the packages. Three, the food for the charity event was the best of the three, overall, not bad. It was OK, I'd say good, but nothing more than that, all things considered.


Bacari -- I have nothing but good things to say, very good things. 

Maggiano's -- one, parking, will not be easy. Two, I've seen a private room there, and I am not sure if it's one of a few, and if so, the biggest, smallest, etc., or if they only have one --but -- any idea if they can hold 80? For me, if I had to choose between the two, I'd flip them, and Bacari would be my first choice, definitively.


Does Bonefish have a private room? That could be a good option. Small? I don't know that 60 to 80 is small, LOL.


I was looking for something that didn't jump out at me. Thanks again for the ideas and input!

I’m sure he will still have some nice gourmet dishes along with his Italian street food. He cures and ages his own meats and salumis. He has been showing off some beautiful dry aged ribeyes that I’m sure will make their way on to the menu.

How is the parking there? Do they have a parking lot? It looks like the restaurant is on a corner by a busy intersection.


Yes, there's parking. You just have to drive around the block so that you know where it is. There's several options. Walking out of the restaurant, to the right, there's a block of street parking around the corner. This is heading toward Jack's Cafe. There's also many parking spots across the street from the street parking and Jack's Cafe, and they are most often available. There is also a very large municipal lot "behind" the restaurant, which you access by (walking out of the restaurant) going around the other corner, to your left. There's tons of parking there. Also, across the street from the restaurant, there's a bank parking lot which the restaurant patrons use at night, and an adjoining lot as well.


I've eaten at Baci -- and the neighboring Mezza (which is excellent!!!), and Jack's Cafe (which is around the corner) -- and I've never had a problem parking.
