Before moving from B'more over 20 years lived a few blocks from the avenue. It has changed so much for the better. Great shops and restaurants. Special events held at different times of the year.

sorry I didn't see your question last week. Most places can handle a table for 8. I would go to the Café Hun, though very busy they have large tables, good service, kid friendly, and a family friendly menu.
