I'm a Philadelphia guy who will be hosting a wedding rehearsal dinner for about 40-50 hungry souls -- 12 months from now. The wedding will be in Topsfield, and I'm thinking of putting on a lobster/clambake.
Does anyone have a good suggestion for either a caterer who specializes in the sort of thing, along with a good venue to host it -- or, a restaurant where we can get a good-sized private room and all the pleasures of lobster, steamers, chowder and the other good stuff?
The closer to Topsfield the better, but anywhere along the North Shore (Newburyport, Salem, Reading, Gloucester, etc.) will work.
Thanks for your help and advice.
