My fiance and I.......Strike that, my mother, my fiance and I are in the early stages of planning our rehearsal dinner and sampling places as a result. We are finding that it is not easy. Our absolute first choice is Osteria in Evansburg. Their side dining room is just small enough not to be suitable for us. (One of my faves in the area by the way, Tuesday night Mussels are to die for). Im looking for a quaint place, possibly BYO that will make it a nice night. Anxious to hear what some people have to say on the subject.
Thanx

    While it's not a BYO I had my rehearsal dinner at the William Penn Inn. They have plenty of private rooms and they did a great job.

          35ish. and Friday night to boot. And speaking of boot...... a freind of mine suggestion From the Boot - Ambler location. Never seen the downstairs private room however.......

            Everyone I know loves From the Boot! I would also check with Zacharia's Creekside to see if their room will accommodate.

              I hosted my daughter's christening at From the Boot in Ambler, we used the private downstairs room. Execllent experience from the service, to the food, to the atmosphere, to the price.... It was BYO at the time (October) not sure if they are still BYO. Definitely recommend it.

            Again not a BYO, but I would think that Parc Bistro would be a fine choice. It's certainly a hipper scene that Wm Penn if that's what you are looking for.

          I would suggest Majolica in Phoenixville. You might have to buy out the restaurant for the night but the food is worth it! The Parc Bistro isn't too bad either. It's probably the best for food in skippack.

            Strongly second Majolica. I am a fan of From the Boot too, but foodwise, Majolica is a whole level above. Besides, Andrew is very flexible. If you have any specific ideas of what you want to eat, he can do it. Some of my friends go fishing on party boats and arrange with him to make a whole meal out of what they caught.

              Another vote for Majolica. Andrew is a great chef and very accomodating. Would probably have to book entire place, not sure about costs, but would certainly be memorable!

              The Blue Bell Inn is very good! The Road house in Skippack is ver good!
