A Pretty Good Lunch Buffet

I needed to find a place to take nine very hungry techno employees that wasn’t too pricey but would satisfy a group of big eaters, so I took them for lunch at Bistro DiMarino. It was a big hit.  For $10 per person, the restaurant offers an Italian salad selection (caprese, gorgonzola/pear, and caesar), a soup (pasta fagioli), cannelloni beans, a couple pasta dishes (vodka penne and gnocchi), and chicken served ways; marsala and parmigiana, and some very good bread. There is fruit for dessert (melon on this day) and a very good cappuccino after lunch.  Plus, the place is simply elegant with hardwood floors, big storefront windows, and exposed brick walls.  I recommend it highly. 492 Haddon Ave., Collingswood, NJ 856-858-1700.  BYOB
