My fiancee and I are getting married just outside New Orleans next October and are looking for a rehearsal dinner site. She is from the Northshore, but my family is from Kentucky. I'm trying to help my parents by getting some information about local restaurants together.
We have around 50 guests that will be at the rehearsal dinner. Ideally, we would like to spend between $30-45/person and probably prefer something near hotels in the FQ. That price should not include alcohol, as we will not be having any at the rehearsal dinner. Our rehearsal (and wedding) is at Houmas House, but all of our guests are staying in New Orleans, so we will be returning to the city for dinner.
I have already looked into several places, including Crescent City Brewhouse (which I've gotten mixed reviews on), Bourbon House, Ralph's on the Park and Tujagues.
Any suggestions you might have would greatly help. We are now living in Nashville and will have to try places as we visit over the next few months. Thanks for all your help!
