So, I'm looking for a venue for a kosher rehearsal dinner in the Chicago area -- with a strong preference for downtown.
I know there are virtually no kosher restaurants in the immediate area and am aware of the Spertus Museum. Any other venue/catering suggestions, though, would be most welcome, from the quirky (is there a vegetarian Indian restaurant certified as kosher?) to the more standard (a good hall with good kosher options).
The key would be to keep costs relatively reasonable for 150-200 people, and to make it have as few moving parts as possible (i.e. it would be best if the venue has a relationship with a caterer, rather than having to assemble the whole party from scratch, but we're open to that if it would make the difference). Again, strong preference for downtown. No strong preference as to who certifies.
I've also posted this on the Chicago board.
