Downtown - dinner for large group

Shari | Jul 22, 2005 06:05 PM

Hi 'hounds -
I've checked the last couple months' worth of posts, and done diligent searches with both search options, now I'm turning to you guys...

I'm looking for a place to have a rehearsal dinner. The wedding is at Cicada, the rehearsal dinner is on a much lower budget. We're considering Philippe's if we can't find somewhere else to feed 40-50 people (including some kids under 10) for around $1000. (I know, I know... good luck, right?!)

Any ideas? We'd like at least a semi-private room, noise levels low enough that hearing-impaired grandmas will be able to hear toasts, and of course we want good food. We will all be staying downtown, so we want to find someplace downtown for the dinner.

Experiences with Ocean Seafood or Empress Pavilion (for large parties), or other spots downtown will be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
Shari
