I just got engaged, so it's wedding planning time!
Does anyone have a recommendation for a restaurant or catering service that serves Chowhound-worthy food... ON A BUDGET?
Specifically, we are looking for unique, "inspired", fusion food that most people (non-chowhounds) have never experienced before. The food definately needs to stand out and be one of the highlights of the evening. The boring/basic "steak and grilled veggies" just will not cut it. Neither are we planning on having a wedding cake (we are throwing tradition out the door). Only delicious, forward-thought food shall be served.
We have the ability to spend at most $50/pp (price needs to include open bar / wine). The capacity for our wedding is between 90-100.
Since we have very little to work with, we are also considering going heavy on delectable hors d'oeuvres (but no dinner) and keeping the bar open for good wine.
I highly regard everyone's opinion here at Chowhound.
Please... any help is greatly appreciated!
