Jing Fong and Golden Unicorn in Chinatown can accommodate 100's of people. Tell them that the kids are not adventurous eaters.

Call Carmine's they specialize in family style dining.

What is J & H?

Very few places will hold that many people. Do you have reservations for the others already? They are likely to require a set menu rather than individual ordering.

It would help to know what they will and won't eat - adn we assume the price is budget.

Carmine's is the perfect choice if they can still accomodate that many. Ellen's is taking all 80? At Carmine's you can set a price and they will bring platters till very one is full and happy.

Carmine's is basic red sauce Italian in huge portions. However if you expect the $25 to include food, beverage, tax and tip I don;t think you can do that at Carmine's. I would call them to be sure if that's possible.

Pastas and chicken dishes are about $30 each - but they should feed 3 or 4 teens - unless you have some with massive appetites (all dishes must be shared). Salads are $20 to $25 each and side dishes/veggies are about $20 each. All are shared - but as you can see if you order all these for the table it will easily get over your limit. Soft drinks are $2 each. But when you add 8% tax and 20% tip - $25 isn;t much.

Sorry - at Carmine's each dish is priced separately - you don;t get veggies or salad with main courses.
