Restaurant for Bridal Shower
I have to plan a bridal shower.
I would like to do a brunch for 35 people. Anyone know a smallish restaurant that wont stick us in a basement room?
I would like to stick to non-spicy foods and no sushi - Italian works best for this group but I am open to any place that is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Decor is important to me!
And of course I am on a budget.... Thinking $40 per/person
Mine was at Provence on McDougal which has a backroom that's a winter garden. We vetted a ton of places. The food is typical French bistro. I also hosted dinner for the top beauty editors fand they were all happy (needless to say, they're a tough crowd). My sister filled tin buckets with sunflowers...just like St. Remy. 2nd suggestion (maybe more affordable) and a bit more sleek is Gnocco in the East village. The restaurant is very small, a white stucco warm room with a ton of natural light from a glass gardened wall out back. The food is simple, northern Italian, and they used to have delicious rustic tarts. Lastly, I went to en engagement party at Duane Park cafe in Tribecca. It's another small restaurant that you could take over. Also a friend had hers at Battery Park Gardens (larger room), and was delightful.
