Going out with a sizable group shouldn’t be anything but a blast. But, during the holiday season I find myself sorting through an endless list of restaurants to find the perfect spot to gather for a group meal that has plenty of space, great service and delicious food. To relieve some of this party planning anxiety, we made a list of some great restaurants comprised of various locations, sizes and cuisines that will accommodate your party, even when you ask to split the bill fifteen ways. (Though we recommend planning ahead so you aren’t THAT group.)
Looking for a new place to host your holiday party? We have openings this holiday season and we can work with you to customize a seasonal menu, wines to pair with it, and offer many other beverage options! Call Jason at +1 (208) 217-2229 or email [email protected]
