What kind of restaurants have you checked? I would think any restaurant’s menu would be OK to charge just for what the individual people are ordering.  I’m from the SF Bay Area but less familiar with San Jose (more Oakland, Berkeley, San Francisco).  

In my experience, family style restaurants: Indian (especially in the South Bay), Thai, Chinese, etc are pretty good pricewise.

@adeharo210:  That’s what I was going to suggest!  Maggianos is a great place for this.

@roseyposey:  Definitely call up Maggianos.  I think you can do it for under $1000!

I’m incredibly curious too!  If we tried to have all family and out of town guests, it would be over 100 people!  We’re trying to figure out if it’s feasible to do this in the San Jose area.

(My fiance is threatening to go with Chuck E Cheese to make it affordable…)

@roseyposey:  Does it have to be a restaurant? You could rent a cool house and have it catered, and you can control the decor and music that way too. Plus you’d have accommodations for some people if you wanted that as well.
