Hi, I am stuggling to find the right place to have a rehearsal dinner for about 50-60 guests on a Friday night in the White Plains/Tarrytown area. We have a few elderly guests so we really want to avoid massive flights of stairs up or down for private rooms. Any thoughts would really help! Thanks.

    LOOK AT THE WHITE PLAINS WONENS CLUB AND THE SCARSDALE WOMENS CLUB. ALL OF THE WOMENS CLUBS ARE PRETTY AND GOOD FOOD. TARRYTOWN HOUSE HAS A FEW ROOMS TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS AS DOES THE CASTLE($$$$$)
    TRY THE IRVINGTON WATERFRONT OR MAIN STREET RESTAURANTS- MAY HAVE FRIDAY EVE AVAILABILITY.

        White Plains Womens club is the CV Rich Mansion that I mentioned above, it's just an alternate name

          Yeshana, have you ever been to Tarrytown House? I saw it and loved the room. How is the food? Thanx

            FOOD IS GOOD- DEPENDING UPON YOUR CHOICE OF COURSE.IF YOU'RE BOOKING AN EVENT ANYWHERE, YOU CAN ASK FOR A SAMPLE TASTING.

          If it doesn't have to be a restaurant you might consider CV Rich mansion. I've heard the food is really good and the mansion is nice. It's in White Plains on Ridgeway. It could certainly accomodate 50-60 people. There are a couple of steps to get in the front door but they told me they can put a ramp on it for handicap accessibility.

            When do you need this res for, jason? Is there a favorite ethnicity? How much do you want to spend? Have you looked at The Kittle House? Sam's of Gedney way has a nice room and an elevator.

              It is for a Friday night in August. I am not partial to any particular cuisine but I suppose as long as "the masses" can find something on the menu, we should be good. All told, we would like to keep it under $70 p/p - alcohol included. Sam's of Gedney Way is intriguing. Thanks!
