Hello fellow Chowhounders,
My fiancé and I are getting married in Newport, RI this October, and we're trying to find a good place to hold a brunch over the weekend for 80-90 people. We're looking for great food and a nice atmosphere (would be great to have a nice view!), but nothing overly formal. So far, what we've found is incredibly expensive -- the Tennis Hall of Fame, which charges $4500 for the space itself (nevermind catering fees) and the Chanler House hotel, which requires a minimum food and drink charge of $8500 (though I think this would have been too formal for us anyway). Are there other, more reasonable options we have overlooked? Thank you!!
