Rehearsal Dinner Suggestions for This Out-Of-Town Host?

So Vino 100 catered your boat event? Did they keep staff on the boat during the cruise?

Looks like I would definitely want an off-boat caterer if I went the cruise route as the boat's menu is pretty uninspired and doesn't seem to have much accommodation for the vegetarians who will be among my party.

I'm off to check Vino 100 out. Any other catering recommendations out there?

Hmmm, very intriguing! Looks more casual than we had considered but that may very well be necessary given our budget. I'll be sure to investigate!

Rehearsal Dinner Suggestions for This Out-Of-Town Host?

Hello Austin Hounds!

My stepson is getting married in the Austin area in May. We will be hosting the reheasal dinner, but we are all east-coasters and so could use your help with suggestions for a venue that could accommodate our 35 guests.

Our budget, like many these days, is modest. While the kids ate at Eastside Cafe (http://www.eastsidecafeaustin.com/) on a recent visit and suggested it as a location for the dinner, the cost of approx $45 per head (plus $500 room rental fee) puts it out of our reach. $25-30 per head is more what we can afford.

Do you have any suggestions for us of a place that would have relatively similar types of food choices/ambiance that would come in at a lower price?

Your help is certainly appreciated!

Chelsea Market is a huge converted commercial bakery building that now houses several fine retail bakeries, gourmet shops, fish and produce markets, tea room, restaurants, wine shop, etc. Kind of a fun place to wander through for a bit. You can have a sit-down meal or grab a quick bite to go at the fish market or one of the bakeries.
