We had a great lunch in CDA at Cafe Carambola. Their Cubana sandwich is pulled pork like you've never had it, and their watermelon ceviche special was awesome too. Really glad to have found it. Good owners too!

Unless they have a private room somewhere, or they're catering offsite, there wouldn't be enough room. Plus, I don't think it's formal enough for something that important.
