Chowhounders -- please come to our rescue!
My fiance and I are trying to plan our wedding rehearsal dinner, but can't seem to stumble upon the right place. We're big foodies, but for this dinner we're looking to save $$ more than indulge in the finer things in life. We're thinking somewhere with a private room that'll charge below $65 per head. Extra special bonus points for something cheaper! About 60 people in total. We definitely want a casual vibe to the place...nothing stuffy and -- good god -- no white table clothes. In terms of cuisine, we're pretty open. Has to be in Manhattan. Would be for a Friday night in late October.
And...that's about it. Please hit us with any and all suggestions and keep us from pulling our hair out whilst dealing with our respective future in-laws!
