I'm glad your event was successful.
While perhaps price acceptable in terms of Brooklyn or Manhattan, BS is pretty expensive for down the shore. As you say, the food is not bad, but it's not great either. I find $ 40 for a mediocre veal chop Parmesan to be pretty spendy. Better American Italian can be had elsewhere in our area for the same or less lira.
As a result, BS would not be my first choice for an event or otherwise.
