As the primary foodie in the family I am trying to help my in-laws find a restaurant on Long Island (preferably in Suffolk county) to host my brother in-law's rehearsal dinner. The dinner is on a Saturday, and there will be around 30 people. We would like to keep the cost below $50 a person, but could go a bit higher if needed. Since a lot of the family is picky, Italian or American food really are the only options. My in-law's would prefer Italian if possible. Also a number of people including the groom and my father in-law do not eat seafood. Does anyone have any good suggestions about where to hold the dinner?
We are far away in the SF bay area, so we do not know the restaurant scene out there, and so far my internet research so far has found nothing. Also what are some other website for reviews of Long Island restaurants? It appears that yelp has not caught on in NY as much as around here. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
