Need Restaurant Suggestions!

Event: Surprise 60th Birthday Party. Roughly 20 people will attend, nearly all from out of town

Location: Preferably downtown

Date: Sunday, August 31 (many places seem to be closed on Sundays!?!?)

Style: Upscale, but casual. Prefer locally owned & operated.

Help me, Urban Planeteers!

Bistro for sure. Leo's if you're looking for more upscale.

Maybe McFaddens - or that Bobby J's I think it's called? the one on jefferson? that'd be a good place to go

Tre Cugini? or maybe Charlies Crab. I like Leo's quite a bit, and they seem to do alright with large groups.

Leo's

616

Cygnus 27

Bistro Belle Vita

All four are upscale but no jacket required.

I'd give the nod to Bistro personally.

I don't think McFadden's would be considered upscale. I haven't been to the GRAM, is that upscale? I thought it was pretty casual.

Subway. Wear a tie, though. 5 dollar footlongs, man.

All kidding aside, The Bull's Head Tavern is both upscale and casual, and the upstairs loft seating can accommodate large groups nicely. The best pork loin in town, too!

Smoked Gouda Chicken Wrap at Bulls Head is one of my all time favorite foods.

Hey, yeah. In the peacock building. Elegant yet friendly. Good chow too.

San Chez is pretty tasty as well; not upscale, pretty casual. I've been to a wedding reception there (50-75) people and it went well. Im sure a group of 20 would work too if thats your kind of fare & atmosphere.

Was back in GR and went to the Green Well again. It is consistently great. Had a good beer sampler and great polenta and BBQ entree. Others had grilled ham and cheese with egg and tomato soup. Yuuuum. Very busy, even on a Saturday afternoon.
