Ossining, NY Area: Cheap & Good Restaurant for Rehearsal Dinner (25 guests)

My future mother-in-law offered to pay for our rehearsal dinner. She is a single woman on a budget, and I would love your suggestions for good, affordable restaurants in the area, which could host a party of 20-25. We are a casual, flexible group who is simply looking to be fed and share a glass of wine or a beer after we rehearse. Someone suggested Isabella's in downtown Ossining. Any ideas? Many thanks!

  1. Isabella's is good, but not cheap. If you're interested in something more casual (and ethnic) Churrasqueira Ribatejo (Portuguese grill) on Spring Street is good AND cheap, and they will work with you on a party menu.

      I will give them a call tomorrow. A restaurant that is cheap, good, and cooperative is hard to beat.

    2. Try Goldfish, they do prix fixe dinners for $19 on Sunday, food is good and varied.

      1. Q BBQ in Mt.Kisco would be ultra low key but fun and good food

          What a great idea! My future mother-in-law loves bbq, and I like the idea of ultra low key during a wedding weekend. Thanks!

              If BBQ's on the list, consider Memphis Mae's in Croton - a bit closer than Mt. Kisco, and pretty great. No separate room for a party, though, so they might not be able to accomodate 25 folks.

          2. Umami in Croton could be good (if you are in the summer months, they have a "porch" that could work)

            Justin Thyme (have a back room that might sit 25 people) - also in Croton.

            Boathouse in Ossining might work, if they'll do a private party (depends when your rehearsal is, I imagine)
