Rehearsal Dinner, Any Suggestions?

I've read through the entire archives of the rehearsal dinner location suggestions and, while I got a few ideas, I was hoping to ask the greater chowhound knowledgebase whether you could help with this specific set of conditions:

We're hoping to have the dinner walkable from either Back Bay or Harvard Sq (where our guests will be staying - we're letting the dinner location drive the horse, the hotel). I expect we're talking about 50ish people, and a *very* low key location, preferably with decent food, but also a private space (not necessarily a sealed room, but a real "corner")

Honestly, by way of comparison, if I could have the food at the level of a "La Verdad" (though not necessarily any ethnicity" and a happy ambiance, all at a reasonable price, I'd be thrilled.

Thoughts? Thanks so much!

  1. Reasonable is tough to define. Could you be specific about your budget (food alone or all inclusive).

      Gosh, I dunno. I think $30-$40/head, exclusive of alcohol/tip would be ideal... BYOB would be a dream come true, but feels like asking for the moon.
