Great place for a rehearsal dinner

If you are looking for a great place to host a rehearsal dinner, we highly recommend Skipjack's on Clarendon. We made arrangments (via phone calls) for our son's rehearsal dinner, and decided on Skipjack's due to the number in our party (they can accommodate 80 in a private room). Sheldon, the manager was extremely helpful in the planning process, and proved to be very accommodating that evening. We could not have asked for better service, staff were all very friendly, professional, organized! We held a cocktail hour with martinis, and an hors d"oeuvres table, then were seated for Soup, Entrees and dessert, all being very tasty! Skipjack's enabled us to run a Powerpoint show of childhood pictures of the bride and groom, which was an additional asset to the evening. Our guests were very complimentary on the fun, casual and relaxed evening. With wine and beer, meal and gratuity it averaged out to about $85.00 per person (total party of 63). Very smooth evening!

Any New Orleans food in Boston ?

We just want to host a FUN night, with good food (not too upscale), for around $60 a person. Crowd will be anywhere from 50-70 people. Since we are not familiar with Boston, except for occasional visits to the city we are clueless as to where to begin. Would prefer New Orleans foods (due to heritage of groom) however we realize how slim our chances are in finding that type of restaurant in the city of Boston.......just don't want Italian, or super gourmet! Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
