Rehersal Dinner Woes

Given the numerous allergies in my family, picking a place to have our rehearsal dinner has been a challenge.  Mr. Bean’s parents graciously offered to pay for the dinner, so we’ve been trying to get things organized in advance. First off, we wanted to have the dinner at the golf club my parents belong to as a red flag comes up with everyones allergies. However, on August 22nd, they are having an East Indian inspired menu, which definitely won’t agree with everyone’s delicate digestion. (The last thing we want is for all the guests to be gassed out by the male portion of the bridal party.) 

Then, one day, Mama Bean was talking about  how she could eat and enjoyed eating Greek food and the perfect solution came to us – The Broken Plate!It’s a 3 minute drive from the church, they serve excellent food and it would be “significant” because I studied in Crete for a month last year! However, our bubble was burst when we found out that for a group of about 30, we could either eat at 4:30 or 8:30 and it would cost $40 – 50 per person. Considering that we were planning on having our rehearsal at 4 or 4:30 neither of those times would work very well. So we’re back to the drawing board. 

Some potential ideas:

Chianti’s – a lovely Italian restaurant that is reasonably priced and a 5 minute drive from the church. Unfortunately, if you don’t like pasta, you’re out of luck. But they do have rice pasta!

Nick’s Steakhouse – who doesn’t want steak (not me, I don’t eat beef.) Excellent food and a bit farther drive, but I know that we can eat here.

Any suggestions?
