Despite my moniker, I was fortunate to have found a lovely Georgian woman who I will be marrying this fall in Atlanta. We're both really into food but my parents and I are not as familiar with the city and are taking the lead on the rehearsal dinner. Unfortunately, there isn't much in the way of rehearsal dinner advice for Atlanta on the CH board, so I was hoping for some recommendations from fellow hounds.
We are looking for a venue for ~125 people. Everyone will be staying right near Peachtree & Ellis downtown. If there's anything worthwhile in walking distance, wonderful. But we are also open to travelling a little bit for the right place (if worth getting a shuttle bus for a 10-20 minute trip but no longer). My fiancée and I are just looking to showcase to our out-of-town friends and my family what a great food city Atlanta is (ideally something quintessential Atlanta like Mary Mac's or ESS). We'd greatly appreciate any suggestions and thank you in advance!
