We are having a non traditional reception in Chicago. We want to do a simple dinner at a restaurant for approximately 25-30 people. So far, the few restaurants we have contacted have required a food & bevarage minimum on top of being charged based on consumption. Does anyone have any recommendations for restaurants that would seat 25-30 people for a dinner after our wedding? We are getting married in West Loop, so we don’t want to have to travel too too far from that location for the early dinner around 4pm.

@letuck01: Check out Open Table. They have a nice feature where you can search by all kinds of things, including the size of your group. That may help narrow it down some.

i’ve been using open table but it doesn’t tell if the restaurants have minimums or not. i’ve contacted about 20 restaurants so far that have required a pretty stiff food & beverage minimum on top of consumption charges.

@letuck01: Also check the local Chowhounds Board. if you can’t find a recommendation, post a query.

@letuck01: We are getting married and having our reception at Mrs. Murphy and Sons Irish Bistro…no minimums, and the food is priced extremely well.
