I am getting married in Miami in May. We'd like to have a large, very casual rehearsal dinner to which all family and out-of-town guests will be invited (at least 50 people). The wedding will be in Coral Gables/Kendall so most people will be staying around that area.
Any options? We'd be happy with practically any cuisine, would prefer an outdoor scene (with indoor backup in case it rains). Sort of a beachy, barbecue, Asian, whatever kind of vibe. Nothing stuffy-- we've had enough pomp in our lives to last a lifetime. To give you an idea-- we're having the wedding at the groom's home church, and the reception will be at his home, catered by his family.
Good food is an absolute must (we live in New York and have gotten very spoiled).
Would DESPERATELY appreciate any suggestions.
