Hey-- getting hitched in April. The church is very close to Northcross Mall. Looking for a decent, casual (not expensive, so sushi is out, dang!) place to bring a big crowd of out-of-towners, relatively handy to the church. Failing that, somewhere on the way up north to the 183/Oak Knoll area would be OK too. No BBQ (I can't stand Texas 'cue, I'm a Virginia gal.)
I considered Trudy's North Star, but they don't do any reservations/roping-off/separate room stuff. Suzi's Chinese was considered, but the food the following day will be mainly Filipino, so I don't want to overdose the non-Asian guests with Asian food. Brunch the day after will be at Freda's Seafood Grill.
What do you think of Buca di Beppo? (I have searched for and read the Buca posts, thanks, just curious about specific opinions for this specific context. We'll have at least 30-40 people so I don't think we can fit in the Pope table.)
We thank you in advance for your suggestions!!
