Why We Love Restaurant Buyouts

Why bother sharing a restaurant when you can have one all to yourself? There are so many great spots in the Boston area and it’s a special treat when you get to call one of them yours for the night.

I LOVE planning restaurant buyouts. The size of the group (and budget) typically determines where I start my search but there are a variety of places that offer “all you can eat and drink” for a fixed rate, which usually includes tax, tip, and decor. You can then focus on getting as creative as you want with the menus. If you’re a foodie (like me) you can start with oysters and bone marrow or, if your group is less adventurous, stick to delicious flatbreads and cheese boards.

To help keep the conversation active, I prefer a reception style event over a seated dinner. This way, your group can mingle, move around, and chat with more than just the two people next to them. If you are looking for some formality, you can always do a family-style seated dinner that is sure to facilitate some good conversation. I also like to negotiate in a meet and greet with the Chef once they are done cooking -- it’s fun to hear the story behind the meal and it adds an interactive element to the night.

If you are ready to book a restaurant buyout, here are my current top 5 favorites:
