Westchester Bat Mitzvah

Just received our daughter's bat mitzvah date (in 2009)and we are starting to look at places. Any suggestions for places with great food, luncheon approx 120 people. Will have a DJ and dancing too!

Thanks!

  1. We also just received our date in 2009 and will be looking as well. Hope to see some replies.

    Maybe you should post what areas you are interested in looking?

    1. Mazel tov to you too! Our services are in Rye and we are planning the luncheon to follow. Hope to stay in a reasonable (?) distance, maybe 30 minutes. I have looked in New Rochelle, Port Chester, Rye and have an appt in Mamaroneck.

      What area are you in?

      1. An acquaintance I know just booked the Coveleigh Club in Rye for a Saturday night bat mitzvah. She had several recommendations and I have a friend who confirmed the positive review having attended an affair there.

          Looked at Coveleigh today! It's beautiful. We also like Mamaroneck Yacht Club. Is there anyone who has been to both and can compare them? Thanx!

            I don't debmom but I'd bet if you start a thread asking specifically about the two you'll get some feedback.

            1. re: laylag

              I checked out Coveleigh too, and I was very impressed with many things. The only thing that worried me is that when the GM sent the proposal later in the day, the date we requested was wrong and the document was full of spelling errors. I liked the place so much but this got me a bit worried... would that be enough to make you think twice?

                I would think twice but I won't run. We went to the Mamaroneck Yacht Club to see it set for an event and the staff looked grungy and the food sparce, we ran! My search continues. You are not looking for a document writer, how's the food and service?

                1. re: debmom

                  Debmom -- what makes me unsure when the GM of Coveleigh gets your date wrong and makes a million spelling mistakes on his agreement is that we are supposed to put 100% trust that it will all be executed as close to perfect as possible. If the man is so careless with his spelling and our bar mitzvah date, my feeling is that he may be just as careless with our affair. When you are putting all that money and faith on the line, I want somebody who has their act 100% together, regardless of how the food tastes!

            2. re: debmom

              Can't compare, but I've been to a few affairs at Mamaroneck Yacht Club, and they were all lovely.

          2. Went to a Bar Mitzvah at La Panettiere in Rye. Excellent food and atmosphere on a Saturday afternoon.

            Pricey
