Tucked into a wooded area on Alexander Road, next to Princeton’s scenic tow path and canal, is a gem of a venue that provides intimate dining for date night or a festive large gathering. The warm craftsman style interior lends itself to a relaxed atmosphere that is ideal for private celebrations or corporate events.
The banquet facilities on the upper floor are spacious, with two rooms able to accommodate groups of any size from parties of 10 to larger gatherings of 100. Overlooking the main dining area, the large private dining room can be transformed into an elegant, white tablecloth venue for that romantic reception or into an open gathering space for business entertaining. This area has a long, full-service bar rather than just the small drinks station that so many other places provide. There is plenty of room to mingle or have a formal sit-down meal. The room also boasts space for a DJ.
Metro North has hosted numerous types of festivities. Bridal showers, rehearsal dinners and weddings, birthdays, anniversaries as well as corporate happy hours, all received the customized attention of the event planning staff. “We offer customized menus to fit your personalized event ideas depending on the occasion and the type of party,” says owner Tony Vitella. “Our creative staff is ready to discuss your needs and offer suggestions regarding choices of food and drinks. Passed appetizers, buffet, sit-down dinner, bar service: we do it all.”
There is no end to the inventive presentations that Metro North can arrange. Why not have an ice cream sundae bar or taco bar at your next corporate function? The menu choices are as varied as your imagination. Tastes range from the delicate Butterfish and Jumbo Lump Crab to the robust Cajan Gorgonzola Filet, with every variation in between. Holiday parties are a specialty with the team.
Metro North also offers an outdoor patio overlooking a garden area that is perfect for al fresco dining. Secluded and abounding with flowers, the area is an oasis for luncheons, dining a deux, or for private events.
