Hi Sydney Myers,
I'm not familiar with the restaurant chain (except to know its mostly California based), but the problem is Dedham is about 30 minutes from Boston without traffic. Not sure I'd want to being my business group on a 30 minute bus ride out of the city of Boston (and another 30 minutes back) just to eat in Dedham when there are so many good options within the city. As a conference attendee I know I would not appreciate this.

I run a few places in city that may be a nice fit for you. I have a French Restaurant called Petit Robert Central Bistro in which wehave 5 meeting rooms that may work for you. It is a chic French Bistro in downtown Boston. Revolution Rock Bar is also another location that may be a lot of fun. It is a rock & roll bar with many entertainment options should you want something fun and different. To download more about our venues you can go to www. meetingboston.com. Thank you

For your consideration: Not far from the Colonade is The Liberty Hotel a "new-er" hotel located in what used to be the City of Boston police headquarters. The bar is called Clink, the restaurant is called Alibi, a bar called The Liberty Bar, etc. Different and fun.
I might be posting this late but i need to give the info.If your budget is too low then go for the colonnade hotel or if you want to have a taste of the french cuisine then you can look forward to the Brasserie Jo..
