Restaurant for wedding dinner in south metro?

Bummer on Ciao Bella because I like the food, but they have no private space. I know that even though we are smaller we could fit in and amongst the populace, but I just don't want to!

I'll check into the Armatage Room, I do love Maude...Thanks!

Restaurant for wedding dinner in south metro?

Looking for a place with a private room or area for 15-20 people for a Friday evening dinner following a wedding. Date is late January and the ceremony will be close to 494 and 100 (Bloomington) or Gleason Road and 62 (Edina).

Since it'll be winter we don't want to have to go too far, so we're looking for something nicer, hopefully not chain-retaurant or too non-descript. We have both meat-lovers and vegetarians in our group as well.

We love places like W.A. Frost, The Strip Club, Muffuletta's, Rinata, Al Vento, NE Social, etc.

Thanks so much!

Thanks, I appreciate it! Do you have any additional suggestions for dinner?

Yup, have done that and I know it won't compare. But wondering more if it's worth the trip and worth spending one of my 9 meals in Paris! Am guessing, no?

Recommendation for our last evening meal in Paris!

My guy and I are headed to Paris next week. We are 30s and 40s, from Minneapolis, love food, cooking, wine and generally anything foodie-related. We're out a couple of nights a week trying different spots at home and avoiding chains, the suburbs or anything too tame like the plague.

Saturday evening will be our last night in Paris and we're looking for just the right spot and would prefer French food. Nothing too big, conjested or touristy, but a cozy, quaint, romantic spot to review our wonderful vacation together. A friend recommended Le Pamphlet, is this a good option? Or any other recommendations? We're up for spending about 150-200 Euros, I think, but are more interested in good food than expensive food.

One more thing, we're staying close to the Metro stop St. Michel-Notre Dame, but we will travel for good food!

We'll be trying Le Reminet for lunch on day, I'm sure.

As a side note, has anyone eaten at the Indonesia restaurant lately? I love Indonesian food, can't get it at home anymore.

Thanks so much!
