LA Restaurant or Catering Service for Wedding?

I just got engaged, so it's wedding planning time!

Does anyone have a recommendation for a restaurant or catering service that serves Chowhound-worthy food... ON A BUDGET?

Specifically, we are looking for unique, "inspired", fusion food that most people (non-chowhounds) have never experienced before. The food definately needs to stand out and be one of the highlights of the evening. The boring/basic "steak and grilled veggies" just will not cut it. Neither are we planning on having a wedding cake (we are throwing tradition out the door). Only delicious, forward-thought food shall be served.

We have the ability to spend at most $50/pp (price needs to include open bar / wine). The capacity for our wedding is between 90-100.

Since we have very little to work with, we are also considering going heavy on delectable hors d'oeuvres (but no dinner) and keeping the bar open for good wine.

I highly regard everyone's opinion here at Chowhound.

Please... any help is greatly appreciated!

  1. I would highly suggest calling the guys at Nourish Kitchen in West Hollywood. The nicest guys and phenomenal chefs. Been popping up at several events I attended and the food has been great every time. My friend used them and said they were really reasonable.

    Ask for Shad.

    1. Check out Auntie Em's in Eagle Rock. (I think the website is Auntie Em's Kitchen) Great food and they really work with you on the cost. I've been to several of their events, and the food is always terrific.
