I am getting married June 28 in Prospect PArk trying to think of where to have rehearsal dinner Friday night. It probably will be 30 to 40 people, trying to do it somewhere fun and not expensive Park Slope ideal but open to surroundig neighborhoods any suggestions would be appreciated.
This thread has some Dumbo recommendations: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/432534
I don't know that these qualify as "not expensive," but might be worth checking out.
I posted this there over the summer about Bubbys.
We recently attended a rehearsal dinner at Bubbys in Dumbo and had a great experience. The view is awesome! The couple reserved the entire upstairs area. There was a small bar set up as well as a three piece band. I think they had some passed hors d'ouevres. The food was served buffet style and was quite good. Certainly not fine dining, but was great comfort food. They don't have the best reputation on this board, but everything was very solid/good and was the casual and homey vibe that the couple wanted. Service was excellent.
