Austin CHers,

You've been an invaluable help planning my destination wedding taking place at the end of September!

As if I don't have enough to do, I've been tasked to find a dinner spot for my pre-bachelorette festivities Fri. 9/28. There will be around twenty of us ladies and I'm looking for something on par with Peche or Parkside (can't seat us until 8:30pm).

We're having Maudies the next day and Salt Lick at the wedding, so I'd prefer staying away from Tex-Mex and BBQ spots.

Ten Oak had room for the guys, but I'm struggling finding an on-par place for me...

Thanks in advance!

    It's not my favorite place but the ladies seem to love Moonshine.

      I haven't been there yet, but Rivals Steakhouse has a huge amount of room inside (I live nearby and walk by it frequently).

        Thanks shan and Rptrane. I'll look into Rivals. I forgot to mention that Moonshine is on my back-up list too. Their large-party res request system looks nice and easy, but (and I rarely say this) I think I'd prefer something a bit newer and modern.
