Need high tea/luncheon reco for small event

Vanessa | Jan 4, 2006 01:30 PM

Fellow hounds,

Please help! I just called Aion Tea House on Division to see if they could accomodate a bridal tea I'm planning to hold in February for 13 ladies. To my dismay, the phone number was disconnected and Metromix indicates Aion closed in the summer! (Guess I haven't been there in a while.)

Does anyone have suggestions for a light lunch or high tea venue where I could hold this event? I'm more concerned about good food than formality; in fact, I'm trying to avoid having it at the Drake, Peninsula or Ritz if possible. The bride, attendees and I are all fairly laid back which is why I had wanted to hold it at Aion. Thanks in advance for any suggestions you might provide.

Kind regards,
