There is some discussion of that beginning here:

Also, both Shloimy's and Simcha caterers have a "simcha in a box" option. I have recently done some research on this myself and some results are below:

Prime 95 $32pp+18% gratuity=$38 min 30
Glatt Bite $38 pp min 40
Dlux $37.50 pp min35
Yapchik $35 pp +250 min 40

Milchigs:
Pizza Place $35pp min 40       buffet style-pay for food minimum $450 plus I think $100 for room
Circa $30pp+80 min 45
Out to Lunch $35pp min 40
Ottimo $40pp min 30 or $35 pp min 40
Greenhouse Cafe $35pp min 30         Buffet $29.30 min 30
Kava $38pp min 30      Buffet $30 min 30

I went to Dougie’s in Deal this week (JSOR is recommended by CRC again) and it was very pleasant. Outdoor seating only, there are 5 tables in the parking lot, not full but there were people there the whole time.
