Hello to all of you great Foodies and Wine-ys out there!

Dilemna: Young child baptism in the Willamette Valley and family party afterward.
Most guests are from out of town, but have visited the NW and Pdx.

Restaurant buy-out possible. Would like relaxed atmosphere, however, only one elderly and one infant guest.
Foodies and Wino guests abound. Hosts would like something Northwest-like as many guests are from out of town; however, personal preference is for French, N. Italian, vegetarian cuisine.

Wines included, price per person not to exceed $60.

Under consideration: Jory's and Painted Lady (Newberg), Bistro Maison and Nick's (McMinnville), Tucci (Lake Oswego), Southpark and Allium (West Linn).

Thirst Wine Bar and Bistro is available on that day, but host wondered if Wine Bar and Infant didn't
cancel out.

Your imagination and suggestions are always so perceptive--thanks in advance!

Grazie bene!

    We've decided on Bistro Maison.
    I'm still interest in any critiques or suggestions you might have.

    Is there a reason why no one responded to this request? Was it too remote? Too wordy?

      a restaurant buyout for <$1440 is pretty hard....

      anyways, enjoy Bistro Maison, I've heard good things from people whom I trust.

      the lack of response could have been the fact that you did your homework and had come up with all the places people would have rec'd anyways!;-)
