Can anyone recommend a restaurant in Northern New Jersey (Bergen, Passaic, Essex) to have a rehearsal dinner for approx 30 people. Some place that is not expensive (possibly buffet style) and that has a private room. Italian or American food is preferred. Thanks!!

We are most likely doing ours at Portobello in Oakland, NJ. My FMIL and FFIL are good friends with the owners. We did my niece’s communion there last year too and the price (without alcohol) was extremely reasonable and it’s a beautiful place. They have several private areas that can accommodate that size group.
Our other option is Il Mulino in Dumont because it’s a BYOB, but we have to finalize the guest list for the RD before we decide because it’s much smaller.

How about Biagio’s Ristorante in Paramus. Great food and private dining.

We hosted one at Lorena’s in Maplewood, no idea what county but to me that’s pretty northern. It was plated, but it’s BYO so we saved a ton on wine. The food was amazing, Chef is awesome.
