Ok- so my fiance and I are pulling together a rehearsal dinner in about a months' time. We need it for mid-August. And 40-50 people are coming. I just want some Chowhound feedback.
We're thinking Chestnut on Smith, I searched the site - good and bad about Chestnut. Anyone have party experience there?
Also in the running - Tempo and Sheep Station. Totally different from each other. But Tempo has great service. BUT Sheep Station has poutine (my dream - I go there almost 1x a week for it).
We also checked out Loulou (too small)
Robin Des Bois (too louid)
Frankie's Spuntino (booked)
And we peeked into the Grocery - but was too busy.
Our budget for 40 folks is about $5000 (about $110 pp). We want it near downtown Brooklyn.
