Suggestions for wedding rehearsal dinner for 25 people

JenEvans86 Sep 22, 2009 02:50 PM

My fiance and I are getting married in NYC next May in a small, lowkey wedding (think rustic garden party).

I'm looking for a fun place to have our rehearsal dinner for around 25 people (our ceremony is at the Cherry Hill Fountain in Central Park and our reception is at the stable/garden at Frankies Spuntinos in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn).

Any suggestions? Our wedding party is mostly in their mid 20's, so it's a young crowd. We're open to anything from Mexican to thai to BBQ (it need not be super fancy locations, just good food/atmosphere). Most of our guests will be staying at the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott, but we'll be up on the UWS for the actual rehearsing part.

Thanks!
Jen

    How about congee bowery or congee village? They have multiple party rooms, will work with you on a family style menu, and the party rooms come with free karaoke. Sounds like a fun rehearsal dinner to me!

      Jen -
      I just went to a really nice rehearsal dinner at The Grocery in Carroll Gardens. I was in a lot of weddings this summer and this was my favorite rehearsal dinner of all. We had the place to ourselves, drinks on the back patio followed by a three course meal in their small front dining room. perfect for 25 people.

        I think we'll be checking out The Grocery!I've heard wonderful things about the place, but I haven't been yet. Thanks for reminding me, we'll check it out soon and I'll report back :-)

        Best, Jen
