KC - Rehearsal Dinner for 30?

jdl98 Apr 17, 2008 08:30 AM

Suggestions? It's a 2nd marriage nothing too fancy. I thought of suggesting Starker's but any other maybe more casual ideas? I haven't been to Starker's but everyone seems to rave about it for rehearsal dinners. Does Carmen's have a private room?

    Carmen's doesn't have a specific private room but I think they will close one of their rooms to accomodate you.
    If you're looking to stay in the Plaza/Brookside area, Grand Street has a private room. For more casual, look at Classic Cups' cellar room or Brio upstairs...

      Classic Cup wine cellar
      Plaza III basement or will close off a certain space
      Accurso's had a rehearsal dinner when I was there a few weeks ago
      Jack Stack I think has a private room...

        If you want to go way casual I'd recommend Manny's on SW Blvd. Think they have something that works out to 12-13 pp, so the leftovers can buy a lot of pitchers of margs! Went to one there, and to be honest was one of the most fun rehearsal dinners i've ever been to. They have a number of different rooms/areas there to fit the bill. Also, I had my rehearsal dinner at Buca Di Beppo down on the plaza. Same as Manny's, there are a bunch of different rooms to choose from, and the prices aren't outrageous. I'd highly recommend Buca if you are looking for a relatively casual experience. I'm not a huge fan of the food there, but everyone left our party raving about it (though most were out of towners that had prob never had real Italian Food).

        1924 Main has a great private wine room that holds 30 or so. Awesome food, a little less "formal" than Starkers if your guests don't mind driving downtown.
