One of my favorite lunch places. All fresh salads and foods. Everything is homemade, salads & soups made fresh daily. Sandwiches are super yummy. A must go to for lunch. They are only open for lunch weekdays.

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.
