I'm planning my rehearsal dinner and need ideas and recommendations for places with good food, that are budget friendly. Our dinner will be for around 40 people, but we have a very limited budget. I'm looking for a place that can accommodate us for dinner on a Thursday night (on January 6th) for around $60 per person including alcohol (house wine or pitchers of sangria will be fine...we don't need open bar or cocktails). Ideally, something on the East side would be best as that is where the hotel is (our wedding is at the metropolitan building in LIC so the guests are staying in Midtown East), but if you have other ideas in other parts of the city, I'd love to hear them.
Thanks for your help!
