I'm in the process of planning a dinner for 10-12 that will include a reception with passed hors d oeuvers and a 3-4 course dinner.
We expect to spend $1200-$2000 in total for the evening, and are especially concerned about a warm inviting atmosphere (nothing too modern), excellent food, and excellent service. We're hoping to avoid the pretentiousness that can often accompany fine dining, yet at the same time receive the service deserved for the pricetag!
We need to stay in the downtown area/Pearl...
On my list of places that meet the space criteria and are available are:
Fratelli in the Lara Sydney Gallery
Irving Street Kitchen
