Well, I am personally having it in Chinatown, since our wedding is bi-cultural and we’re having a traditional Western plated sit down dinner for the reception.  We’re just going to do it up family style and have lots of fun!

My FI’s brother went to Buca di Beppo for his. 

I think the best way to decide is to figure out what your cuisine will be, then how many people you are inviting and what you want your budget to be.  Even though my FI’s father is paying for it, we didn’t want to burden him too much with the cost.

Hope that helps!

What part of town are you interested in?  Also, consider what you are serving at the wedding and go in a different direction for the RD.

We’re doing ours at our favorite Colombian restaurant, Mi Pueblito.  My FI is Colombian and we want to introduce our friends and family to a new style of food.  Buenuelos y areapas…yumm!

@stine_white – are the arepas any good here in Houston?  I just saw a Bobby Flay throwdown on the Food Network and am so curious about it! 🙂

I saw that too!  Those looked great.  They were Venezuelan areaps which are a little different than Colombian areaps.  Colombian ones typically aren’t filled with stuff, they are usually topped with things and the dough is more corn based than the Venezuelan ones.  The only Venezuelan ones I know of are a little stand on the corner of Westheimer and Fondren.  There’s nowhere to sit, but the areaps are good.  For Colombian ones, I’d suggest Mi Pueblito or one of the Colombian restaurants on Clay and Hwy 6.

Goode Co. on Katy Freeway . . . lots of out of town guests, so I wanted some regional flavor.  Otherwise, I would do fajitas.

We lived in Sugar Land at the time, so we had ours at The Burning Pear at the Marriott in Sugar Land Town Center. We really liked it! The room we got was perfect for us, and their minimum was not bad. The food was great and it had an upscale Texas flair.
