Worcester, MA: rehearsal dinner suggestions?

chnewbie | Jan 9, 2012 01:00 PM

Happy New Year, foodie friends! Here's the challenge: 70 people; Friday night; informal.

I'm looking for a place to hold a **sit-down** rehearsal dinner in downtown Worcester on a Friday night in June 2012. We plan to invite about 75-85 out-of-towners and believe that all of them will attend. The wedding will be formal, so we'd love to have a more relaxed/informal rehearsal dinner. As well, my fiance's parents are generously footing the bill and we would prefer that they not go broke. I think that they're open to most types of food except sushi and Indian.

Is a $30-or-less per person meal (appetizers, dinner, drinks, maybe dessert) a possibility? We would also love to have one room that could fit all 70--we don't all have to sit at one table, but we're having trouble finding a space that will allow all of us to sit in a single room or section of a restaurant. We visited Nuovo--it had room for enough of us but was pricier than we'd hoped; my fiance also put the kibosh on Ceres Bistro. One Eleven Chop House, Via Italian Table, The Sole Proprietor, Northworks Bar & Grille, and Peppercorns are all too small.

I'd appreciate any help or suggestions. Thanks in advance!
