Looking for a great Rehearsal dinner spot in Wilmington DE!

I am getting married at Winterthur Museum and I am looking for a great restaurant that could accomodate around 50 guests for a rehearsal dinner. I am planning my wedding from NYC so I don't of many restaurants in that area. Would like to stay in the $50/person range...any suggestions?!

    I believe the Columbus Inn which katecm mentioned is now closed. The other place she may be talking about is the Mendenhall Inn. That would be nice.

      Not sure when your event is, or if it already happened, but Domaine Hudson wine bar & eatery in downtown Wilmington is worth a try. It's within walking distance of the Hotel du Pont, and it's about a 20 min. drive down RT 52 from Winterthur. www.domainehudson.com

        I only get to Wilmington occasionally, but often find the Columbus Inn to be quite charming. There's another place further from downtown (but not quite to Winterthur) that is adorable - an upscale put sort of place? Oh, I wish I could remember its name. It would be a nice, relaxed spot.

        You lucky thing - what a spectacular place to get married!

          We had a terrifically successful birthday party for my mother-in-law with about that many (at about that price) at the Gables in Chadds Ford, just outside of Wilmington.

            You might want to post this on the right board, which would be the mid-Atlantic board.
