My father died recently, and my family is gathering with his close friends the night before his memorial service to share memories and bond (there'll be about 25 of us). Frankly, he wasn't a hardcore gourmet, but he liked good classic French food and a cosy, somewhat old-fashioned French atmosphere. I've been scouting restaurants in which to stage the dinner, and have found three where the decor/coziness factor seems all right. If one had to choose between these three places, which has the best food?
And are there others I should consider? We need something cheerful, not too formal and not over-the-top expensive, and someplace with a good private space where elderlies making speeches can be heard. Thanks to all of you for any input you can give me! I don't have much time to book this, sadly.
