Rehersal Dinner Space in Beverly Hills
We are getting married at the Four Seasons on Doheny and Most of our guests will be staying at the Four Seasons, the Montage or the Thompson. We are looking for a place to have our rehearsal dinner (about 125 people) and trying to spend under $17k. This is harder than it sounds. Our budget eliminates the Peterson, all BH hotels, PDC, etc. and our size eliminates most local restaurants. Anyone have any ideas? We are open to something fun and non-traditional (outside and hire real BBQ, the In-and Out Truck) but can't find a suitable location. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

El Torito Grill max is about 60, but you may be able to work something out for the main dining room. They're really great to work with!
Maggiano's at The Grove
Napa Valley Grille
Century Plaza Hyatt
Nate & Al's
Let me know what you end up with! We're looking for a rehearsal dinner too, somewhere the same part of town for about 50 people and El Torito Grill seems like the best bet so far!
Have you checked out Wolfgang Puck catering? They have some spaces for events, including at Spago and Cut in Beverly Hills. Not in Beverly Hills, but accessible are some of their exclusive venues like the Pacific Design Center, Hammer Museum, Hollywood and Highland, and Sony Studios.
