I think we will do it at the NYU Torch Club in Greenwich Village – I’d prefer pizza but my Future Father-In-Law is a professor there and I think he gets a discount!

@star Looking forward to reading your rehearsal dinner reveal!  I love reading your and Miss Swan’s posts and seeing familiar locations around NYC!

@Auro877  Great location!  I’ve been to the Torch Club (I’m an NYU Alum), and I really like the atmosphere.

We haven’t yet decided on our rehearsal dinner location, since it’s a while away, but we wanted something fun, casual, and not too expensive.  We might go with Patsy’s – who doesn’t love a good slice?

we’re doing chinese – i’m chinese and he’s not so this’ll be a way to infuse some of my heritage into the celebrations (we’re having a non-asian wedding reception – cuisine wise). it’ll be family style

we’re doing it a very down to earth place hi-life one block from rehearsal on the UES

 

since our wedding is already very fancy we thought we’d go for a more casual feel for dinner

 

might change our mind and do a nice chinese restaurant in the neighborhood shanghai pavilion

We had our rehearsal dinner at Jane.  It was only the wedding party and significant others (they seat a max of 30 people). They have an awesome private room downstairs that fit us perfectly.  The food and service was great.  My only warning: when we chose to buy wine by the bottle, we didn’t put a cap on the # of bottles that could be opened so the waitstaff was very generous refiliing the glasses.  Well, none of the guests complained.

We considered having our post-wedding brunch at Jane. Creme brulee French Toast — yum!

We’re having our rehearsal dinner at this small, fabulous restaurant called A Cafe and Wine Room in UWS. It’s an organic French-Carribean restaurant & we’ve been going there for YEARS so it was a natural choice!

@skimmilk – French Caribbean sounds great. I am always for anything Caribbean 🙂 

I definitely love the idea of ethnic food except I think Mr. Swan’s family is not so adventurous with the food. I would have definitely had it at a Caribbean restaurant that I took Mr. Swan to when we first started dating.

I think we’re having ours at home. We’re in one of the outer boroughs and little ways from midtown but we have a backyard and it would cut down on so many costs.

We’re “inconveniencing” everyone and making them come out to Brooklyn for the rehearsal dinner and post-dinner drinks (for our friends). We’re going to my local favorite, Chestnut, for dinner and then my favorite wine bar nearby for drinks afterwards.

 

I’ve lived in Cobble Hill for the past 5 years and I love it madly, and so I wanted my family and friends to experience it.  I figured that most people would take cabs to get to dinner or the bar, so once they’re in a cab, it’s just an extra 10 minutes to get out to my neighborhood.

At a HUGE chinese food buffet! But this place has great decor, lighting and the waitresses are in traditional Chinese clothing.
