Recommendations for Twin Cities Rehearsal Dinner
hey guys-- i'm from baltimore and i need some help finding a great rehearsal dinner restaurant for my wedding this july. i'm looking at 15-25 per entree, someplace in uptown or downtown. thanks for any help you can offer!
Not sure if you wanted your $15-$25 menu to include app, wine and/or dessert -and though it's on the upper end of your budget - if you did want it in Uptown - what about JP American Bistro?
I've found private dining for 20-30 people, unfortunately, a little hard to come by around here (compared with say, Chicago). You're mostly going to be looking at fine(r) dining chairs like Capital Grill and Palamino. Not bad places to eat at all, but not necessarily the best of what the TC has to offer IMO.
Lurcat (Dowtown, likely over budget) http://www.cafelurcat.com/
Solera (Downtown, likely over budget) http://www.solera-restaurant.com/
Capital Grille (Downtown, maybe over budget) http://www.thecapitalgrille.com
Azia (Eat Street Mpls, not quite private, maybe over budget) http://www.aziarestaurant.com/
Loring Pasta Bar (in Dinkytown Mpls, but under budget) http://www.loringcafe.com/
Rossi's (Downtown, steakhouse, over-budget) http://www.rossissteakhouse.com/
Vincent (Downtown, likely over-budget) http://www.vincentarestaurant.com/
20.21 skyline room (In the Walker, over-budget
Palomino (Downtown, maybe over budget) http://www.palomino.com/
Drink (Uptown, last resort IMO
)Stella's (Uptown, hope your guests like seafood) http://www.stellasfishcafe.com/
Chino Latino (Uptown, I would not recommend this at all
112 Eatery (current darling) just opened their second floor, however, I do not believe their kitchen could take a party of 10 much less 30.
There are several patios that might be available as well in July for reservation including Stella's and Joe's Garage (Drink Uptown has a large patio as well).
I am sure I left out a ton...congratulations and all the best.
