I am working on finding a place to have a good dinner for 40-50 people in Chapel Hill (preferred) or Durham next year, and although my mental encyclopedia of Triangle restaurants is lengthy, I am having trouble coming up with places with that much space. Now we are really lamenting the passing of Aurora, it would have been perfect! Renting out an entire restaurant is a possibility, if they're open to that. The only place my mother-in-law-to-be found was the Sienna, which is a bit more stiff and formal than we were hoping for. Have any of you been to events like this at a local restaurant that you thought came out well - good food, professional service?
