Help with Wedding Rehearsal Dinner in Boston

pvonner Jun 17, 2010 09:09 AM

Can anyone give recommendations for an inexpensive ($20 per person) and fun place to host a wedding rehearsal dinner for about 50 people in Boston/Cambridge area. Since the wedding is formal, I wanted the rehearsal dinner to be more relaxed and informal.

      Is BBQ too informal? Redbones might be a fun place to a get a group together although I'm not sure how they deal with private parties.

          I don't think Giacomo's can fit 50 people in the entire restaurant in the North End. Not sure about their South End location.

          There are some great places in cambridge. Cambridge Brewing Company, Grafton Street,). $20/per person is hard to get in Boston. Joe's on the waterfront has a great upstairs room with a view over the water,

            Does this $20 include alcohol? You can easily spend $20 pp just on wine and beer, never mind the food. S&S Deli is spacious and NEVER crowded at night. Not sure I'd consider it fun.

              Another option that is around your price range (some entrees a little below and some a little bit more) than what you're looking to spend is Eastern Standard.
