Birmingham Bridesmaid Luncheon


I'm hosting a bridesmaid luncheon in late August and would be interested to know if you have any reccomendations in the Birmingham area.

Here are the requirements:
20-23 people
$35 per person (before tax and tip)
3 (light) courses

Any insight you can provide would be fabulous!

Thank you!

  1. This is totally not my area of expertise but I wanted to ask some questions and perhaps other locals can help you.

    Are you thinking of renting out a space?

    What day of the week?

    Are you saying that the $35 pp would include wine?

      I assume you are wanting a restaurant- what area?

    2. Bottega Cafe sometimes books private parties in the upstairs of their next door fine-dining restaurant. You might also try The Veranda, or Cafe Dupont which has added a new room and bar. These places are located in 5 Points South and downtown. For something out on 280, there is Fleming's Steak House and there is a McCormick & Schmitt's located near the Brookwood Village mall. I'm a Southside rat, so perhaps someone else can suggest places further out.

        Olexa's is great in mt brook village- may cater it but don't think she does private luncheons- still thinking- hard to think of palces since i live here-most have them at private clubs or homes.....

      2. Much thanks to all of you! We are going with Veranda! Appreciate your help.
