Let me know what you hear about Audrey Claire! I read somewhere that they have a crazy high restaurant buy-out price (in addition to the cost of food). If you inquire, please share!

Vernick might be a good try, though I don’t know how they handle big events. Estia has private rooms, though I don’t know about the bathroom issue. How far are you willing to go? Do you want walking distance?

Audrey Claire is byo, cash only, no reservations on any other night. I imagine they will be expensive.

@Andyisgreat:  HOLY COW!!! That was one of our top choices…but I guess our search will continue, too! That’s insane!!!

@Andyisgreat:  I mean, that is just crazy! I guess they’re really raking in the dough on an average Friday night. My RD will be on the 4th of July so I was thinking maybe they wouldn’t be as busy on that night so they might be willing to lower the buy-out…but even if they cut the buy-out in half (which I’m sure they wouldn’t), it’s still crazy expensive if it doesn’t include food!!! Continental is a good choice! I think our top choice is now Zahav, even though it’s not within walking distance of the hotel.

@Andyisgreat:  Yes we are doing Sofitel, also. Good to know that that includes food, but I still don’t think we are looking to spend $8K + alcohol 😉 $4K is much more reasonable!!
