Bridal Shower Mid-Westchester

I'm hoping that someone is able to guide me in the right direction. I am looking for a restaurant in the mid-Westchester area to have a bridal shower April/May of this year. Half Moon was my first choice given the river views however they only offer buffet and were booked on the 3 dates I am looking at. Harvest is also unable to accomadate us.

I am looking for a place with great food and somewhat of a view (I would hate to be stuck in a back room without any windows). I do not want to have it in the City of White Plaiins as guests would more than likely have pay for parking. The Rivertowns are fine; Rye (not Rye Grill and Bar as the Rehearsal Dinner is more than likely there) and surrounding areas.

There will be roughly 45-50 ppl and a budget of $50/person (including wine).

Thank you in advance.

    Since you mentioned water views, and given the time of year, perhaps a venue on LI Sound would work for you. For example, http://www.mamaroneckbeachandyacht.com/.
    I have been to parties there and they were really nice, but I have no first hand experience.
    Just and idea and good luck.

      I had my daughters bridal shower at the Pleasantville Country Club (Unique Affairs). The food is great and they have a lovely porch which overlooks the golf course.

        I just wanted to follow up to my original post. We ended up having the shower at Palmer's Crossing in Larchmont. While there were no waterviews, the large windows and natural light in the room made up for it.

        Everyone who attended was very pleased with the food, they even allowed me to switch out items at no extra cost. The owners were extremely accomidating and even capped our wine consumption at a price/head instead of per bottle which my Mom originally thought was a more cost effective choice.

        One of the highlights was their eggplant napoleon, which is one of the items that I wanted added to the menu.

        I would certainly recommend Palmer's Crossing to anyone who is looking to host a party.
