Westside Rehearsal dinner suggestions 50+ people
New to chowhound and getting married in November. Wondering if anyone has suggestions for a unique, fabulous place for a rehearsal dinner ($40-50/person) for about 50 people. Some kids under five.
thanks in advance!
At one point, I was seriously considering a private party at Monsoon Restaurant on the Third Stree Promenade in Santa Monica. It's exotic and different looking and not outrageously expensive...and no, you don't have to order the crickets and ants that are on the menu!
The Restaurant at The Getty has a private room available, and I believe the dinners are in your price range. The view is impressive, and the food is great too. Your guests could wander around the museum ahead of time, and there's no charge for that (other than parking).
I'm looking for a wedding rehearsal dinner location for October, so I've done the research. I wish The Getty was in my budget!
I would suggest the outside patio at Il Moro...it is really nice, the water feature keeps you from hearing the traffic and the food is really good.
We had our rehearsal dinner at Koutoubia restaurant in Westwood...this is a Moroccan restaurant w/ big cushions to sit on and a set menu under $30.00.This was fun and a different experience then your basic sit down.The owner Michel is a bit of a character,and he will push the drinks like crazy to bump up thetab,so be wary.
