Last minute wedding planning problem: we are planning a reception for 11 people in 3 weeks and have to find a location that can accomodate all of us but that would still be intimate.
We really wanted to go to the River Cafe as we have always loved their tasting menu and the quiet but still relax and comfortable atmosphere, topped with great service. Unfortunately, they changed their mind and told us yesterday they cannot accomodate more than 8 people, which is impossible for us to do. What would you recommend?
As I said, we want an intimate restaurant and we would love to splurge on a tasting menu with wine pairing. We chose to make it small so that we would not have to compromise; this is our wedding but it is also a way to thank our parents for everything they have done for us. We want a relatively quiet place: a place where people can feel comfortable celebrating as they don't see each other very often, but also a place where we can hear each other speak, if you know what I mean.
Our budget is around 150$/person, we are willing to cheat on the wine pairing option to fit in this.
Thanks a lot, we really need help!
