So, we got a call last week that our reservation was being cancelled because the restaurant (Tutto Pasta on King Street) was closing their doors. =( I’m super bummed because their atrium was perfect, and it wasn’t super pricey (plus they gave you a ton of choices for the menu). Does anyone have any suggestions for a place that might be similar? I’d like to do Italian…

OOoo, I wonder the same thing. Have you been to Underground Kitchen yet? In my mind, that would be the kind of place I would want to have a Rehearsal Dinner, but I haven’t actually been there. I also thought about Harvest (I guess they have a room upstairs) but it is $$$, plus the lady never emailed me back :/ Do you like The Orpheum?

I just checked out the website for Underground Kitchen, that looks really cool! (I have to admit, I don’t get out much anymore, I hadn’t heard of it… *sheepish grin*) And you’re right, Harvest is a bit too spendy for me. Orpheum’s a really good idea, I hadn’t thought about them! I’m going to look into that- thanks!!!

Reviving an older thread … we are having ours at Brocach on the Square. There is no room fee for reserving the upstairs, and their catering menu is pretty flexible – you can order off the regular menu if it’s a smaller party, or do a spread of heavy hors d’oeuvres, etc. for a bigger get-together. We have a ton of out-of-towners coming in, yet I don’t want my Future Father-In-Law to be on the hook for paying for scads of my relatives (my family is much bigger than FI’s). Brocach offers a nice solution: we’ll be having the actual dinner with mainly just the wedding party, but then inviting more widely among the out-of-town guests to come down and join us for a pint and some appetizers afterward. Very happy with this compromise, and looking forward to it – their food is really good!

I’d also love to comment for future brides visiting the thread. Great Dane (East or Dt) is an awesome spot and Brickhouse BBQ is a fun spot (with great views) too!
