We had the rehearsal dinner at Red Pearl restaurant in Columbia, it was really nice and very reasonable ($25pp+wine, tax, tip).  We also did it on Thursday rather than Friday to make it easier to find a place.

Are you looking to stay in the area of the harbor for the convenience of Out of Town guests staying nearby? Expand the search to other areas of the city? head out to the county? If so, what part?

My first thought was to head over to Little Italy to one of the older restaurants. Many of them have private areas upstairs that would work well for a group, and it’s a short cab ride away from the harbor.

Maybe Bo Brooks in Canton? It’s right there on the waterfront with nice views, the food is decent, and they have nice areas within the restaurant for groups.

Or you could embrace true Baltimore kitsch at Cafe Hon in Hamden. But they really aren’t a seafood kind ofplace.

What about looking in either Fells Point or Canton?  There are a ton of cute little restaurants (I LOVE Jack’s Bistro and/or Bistro RX) and since there are so many little bars (or big ones!) around there, there is plenty of places for Out of Town people to mingle after the event so you could avoid having to invite them all.

Bo Brooks would be.

Shuckers in Fells Point has good food with areas for a private party.  It’s also on the water.

If you do go with BistroRX, on the other side of Patterson park (like towards Canton Square) is an awesome bar called The Taphouse.  Its small, but has a great beer selection and great bar atmosphere.

Little Havana has a great party room- we’re considering it since we’re getting married at the Museum of Industry. Other contenders are: Wine Market (former co-worker utilized for her daughter’s rehearsal and raved about it), Blue Hill (free valet). I’m not impressed with Bo Brooks’ food (been a couple of times), but the space is nice, right on the water. Also thinking about Amicci’s in Little Italy, since it’s not high priced, AND you can go to Vacarro’s afterwards for desert! Mmmm!

Are your guests staying downtown? You could have them take the circulator to someplace in Federal Hill, or Mt. Vernon, as another option.

Since your Mom wants crab- maybe crab dip as an appetizer vs. crab feast?

Hey there,

 

What about Nick’s Fish House? They have awesome crab cakes and it’s also on the water but offers more privacy.

We wanted to be walking distance from our venue and in the inner harbor as well without breaking Future Mother-In-Law & FFIL’s budget.  We’re going to Tir Na Nog.  It’s going to be about 20 people and the price we got is just over $35 with tax, plus gratuity.  We will not be paying for people’s drinks. I bet my dad picks up that tab, though.
