Help! Group of 30-35 looking for something similar to Otto

Pago77 | Jan 6, 2012 10:27 AM

We are a group of 30-35 that is having trouble of coming up with ideas. Meal is for a rehearsal dinner. We really like the menu at Otto (and the food/vibe), but are slightly concerned about how they would rope us off in the "back room." As it stands, they say no speeches...which is fine, as long as a toast or two can be made. However, if there are suggestions of other similar places (in terms of level of food/atmosphere...not too stuffy, casual food that is elevated beyond casual), we'd love to have them! (Or if you have had a large party there -- 20+ -- please let us know how it went, pros/cons).

I've already done a few searches on Chowhound, but still trying to come up with ideas. Another place that came to mind was Blue Smoke, but I think we are too small for that for a Friday evening. No particular cuisine necessary, outside of nothing too ethnic. Looking forward to the suggestions. Thanks so much!
