I am from Vienna, Va originally but have not lived there in years. My husband and I have a new baby and have chosen to baptize him in the church where I was baptized in Vienna.
Anyways, we are having an 11:00am baptism on a Saturday and we are looking to host a brunch for 25-30 people afterwards.
It has been so long since I lived there that I don't know where to start and we don't want to break the bank.

Would like to keep to a budget of maybe $15 a head if possible??

Any suggestions would be helpful!

Thank you!

Marco Polo does a nice job with their Sunday brunch. It has a cozy atmosphere and room to accommodate groups. Not sure what they would do on a Saturday, but it might be worth asking. The Sunday price is $22.50 per adult, and $12.00 for kids 5-12. 4 and under are free.

Call Sweetwater Tavern at the intersection of Gallows & Rte 50 in Merrifield. I believe they do a brunch/lunch menu until about 3:00 on Saturdays. I don't know if Cafe Deluxe (International Drive just east of 123, beside the Crate & Barrel) does a Saturday brunch menu or not, but worth a call.

There's a small room at Le Madeleine, too near Tyson's Mall.

Also Maggiano's in Tysons II -- they have an upstairs "party room." Another suggestion is The Cheescake Factory in Tysons II -- they actually do a nice brunch.

Amphora might work.

What about the Vienna Inn?

Clydes of Tysons maybe?

Only if the child is to be baptized in Budweiser rather than holy water.

I would also check the Daily Grill in the Galleria, since they have a banquet room. Click on "private dining" on their website for menus. Their brunch menu (without any special requests) is priced at $14.95/head, plus gratuity, per their current pricing. They also have an array of breakfast buffet options for private events, so that might be an option as well.

The Amphora is right in Vienna and they have great brunch food, fabulous Eggs Benedict, and moderate prices. Their bakery makes good breads and desserts for the restaurant. They also have a private room that is quite nice for parties. The Amphora is so ''Vienna'', I'd go there. If not there, Clyde's at Tyson's Corner.

Amphora does have its name attached to vienna, but IMO, its just an over priced IHOP.

i would highly recommend Skorpios and Maggios (or is it Maggios and Skorpios?). its right by the intersection of Behulah Rd and Maple Ave., right next to Wendys. Good prices, quality food, and they give u tons of it.
