Rehearsal Dinner Location Rittenhouse in Winter


Looking for a rehearsal dinner spot in the Rittenhouse Square area of Philadelphia. Doesn't have to be in the square but somewhere close, possibly in walking / short cab ride. We're looking for something that would hold at least 50 people. BYOB preferred by in reality is not going to happen. Any kind of food will do (we are not filet and lobster people). Looking for a chill place on a friday night where we can wind down, drink wine, get full and have a wedding the next day.

Thanks in advance.

  1. We did a similar event Upstairs at DiBruno Brothers with about 60 people on a Friday night. You bring the booze, they do the catering (and the bartending)... and they do a pretty big range, we did antipasti, sandwiches, salads, desserts and gelato, but they'll also do more entree-type stuff. We did apps in one room, dinner in the other, but people were free to mingle from side-to-side.

    1. I would also suggest Branzino. I had a private dinner there for about 40, BYOB. The service was great, although they were very heavy on pouring the wine... My guests enjoyed it though! Food was excellent too.
