I'm going to be getting married in Philadelphia, and while I'm from the city, I haven't lived there for about 12 years (we live in Boston). We're doing it there primarily to accomodate family. I'd love suggestions for places with really great food - that's the primary concern for us! - that could also accomodate a party of between 50-60 people OR really fantastic caterers. Any help would be appreciated, as I've not eaten in the city for some time and am a bit overwhelmed... Budget is between $5 and $10k.
My friend is visiting NYC for a week in the end of February, and he loves to try new restaurants. The catch is, we're both grad students, so nothing too break-the-banky. If anyone has any suggestions for Must Go places that would be great. We both eat anything and everything, so no cuisine restrictions, just the restaurants that hold a special place in your heart! We both really dig fun, interesting brunches through - for any Midwesterners out there, we love M. Henry, Tweet, and Bongo Room in Chicago.
Appreciation in advance for your suggestions!
