Greetings Dallas Chowhounds.
I am looking for some advice regarding my Wedding dinner. We are planning to get married early next June, most likely at the Dallas Arboretum and are looking for have a spectacular, memorable dinner. We will be a party of six including a 9 and 14 year old. Originally, we were looking at French restaurants such as The Mansion, St. Germaine or the French Room (We are still thinking of getting a room at one of these three places to stay our wedding night.) However, the more we think about it, the more we wonder if this is not the best choice for our group. We will have two children at least one of which is a fussy eater. So, we have now started thinking about a high level steakhouse. Our thoughts currently include places such as Pappas Brothers steakhouse, Capital Grill, and III Forks. We are looking for a steakhouse which has at least some seafood and non steak options and we are more interested in varied appetizers than dessert as we plan to bring our own wedding cake. Of course we would be thrilled to get a private room but a quick look tells me that for most of these places 6 people would be too few to do this. I know it is more than a year away but we hope to wrap up some of the details this summer. Any ideas and experience you can give are appreciated.
