My niece is getting married in Montreal this summer and she's asked me to help her organize the rehearsal dinner.
My job is to help her find a restaurant to wow her guests on a budget. She has about $750-800 to spend on the dinner. Here are her parameters:
-Bring your own wine
-Location: Central Plateau, Downtown, Quartier Latin or Westmount
-Cuisine: French or Italian, emphasis on presentation
-Small and cosy
Ideally, she'd like to find a SMALL restaurant where she can basically reserve the entire place for a couple of hours on a Thursday night. She'd like to negotiate a fixed menu (i.e., everybody eats the same thing, banquet style), for a fixed price. It's important to her that the owner allows her to choose the music during the Rehearsal Dinner.
Anybody here been to a place like this? Anybody here OWN a place like this? Lets talk!
