  1. Check out Dresslers at the Metropolitan. They have sold food and a nice ambiance.

    1. Andrew Blair's
      Villa Antonio in Ballantyne
      Brio Tuscan Grille - although I think it may be a chain
      Cantina 1511 - I know the Ballantyne location does, not sure about East Blvd location

      Cantina 1511
      1511 East Blvd, Charlotte, NC 28203

      Brio Tuscan Grille
      4720 Piedmont Row Dr Ste 150, Charlotte, NC 28210

      1. The Liberty has a great private area. May not be enough room for 50 for a sit down,but I think that they can handle that many for drinks and apps.

          We had some really horrible service at The Liberty a couple of weeks ago. They weren't busy (in fact they were dead) and staff kept walking by us as we waited to be seated. No acknowledgement, no nothing. Finally we stopped a waitress. She sat us and then waited on us and she was anxious to move us along... eventhough it appeared she wasn't getting off anytime soon. It was weird. My friend was still eating and she said to him "why don't you grab that ketchup off your plate and then I can take your plate and you can finish your fries". WTH??? It was crazy rude! Our burgers were overcooked too. Needless to say, it left a bad taste in mouth.

            IMHO they are one of the most over rated places. They get great press? The few times I tried them and really wanted to like them as l live nearby. They never impressed me at all at best the food is fair.

              Yea, I have had a decent burger there and their fish sandwich was good, but nothing mindblowing. I was rooting for them though. I liked the concept and the renovation. They certainly have generated a lot of hype - kind of like Good Food on Montford - but I haven't experienced anything to justify the hype at either place.

            Had a great meal at Blue last weekend (Scallops App and Boar 2 Ways highly recommended)
            Peaked into their Event room and I'd be surprised if it can handle 50. Check out Harvest Moon Grille at the Dunhill. Attended a cocktail party at the Dunhill a few months back and had no idea they had such charming private rooms upstairs above the restaurant. Harvest Moon serves their local goodness in these rooms. Not positive but if I had to guess I think they can handle 50 for dinner.

          2. Thanks for the suggestions guys! It looks like we've got a chage of plans - we have a space and now are looking for catering or food to be delivered instead.
