Bridal showers for 40 people

Marygflute Apr 15, 2012 04:57 PM

I am looking to hold a bridal shower for about 40 people. Not sure how to go about looking for venues. Location is north, near north or northwest suburbs. Must have a good vegetarian option as the bride is a vegetarian. Thanks for any help.

    Try Topo Gigio in Old Town. They have a wonderful room upstairs. The rehearsal dinner for my first marriage was held there ;) I'm SURE they'll have some great veg options.

      Went to wonderful baby shower at Quartino. Host was a vegetarian, lots of meatless options and delicious wine.

        Quartino is always good, although for 40 it's not the best spot. For larger groups I tend to suggest Reza's for affordability and pretty good food (vegetarian friendly). I've been to a wedding reception and an office party there and it's been great.

          Quartino has a lot of room upstairs, The shower I went to had 8 tables of ladies and there are multiple rooms available. They can accommodate that size party easily.
