Restaurants that Host Private Parties-McKinney, Frisco, Plano, N. Dallas

Hello!

This is my first post on this board, but I've been looking around at other posts and it seems like all of you have wonderful ideas! 

My fiance and I relocated to the area about a year ago so we're still trying to learn about all that the Dallas area has to offer. We are planning a small, 30-40 guest, wedding. We are planning to get married at the Bella Donna Chapel in McKinney and then have a private party at a nice resturant instead of a reception. I have only found a few resturants (III Forks & Maggianos) that offer private party packages and hoping that you allcan help me come of with a few other options. Being that the majority of our guests are coming in from out of town I don't want to have them drive too far from the ceremony location.

Any suggestions/recommendations are greatly appreciated!!

    Juliebug had her reception at Maggiano's and she always says how much she loved it. I know Urban Crust will do private events, but I think they have to be pretty small.

    Why does time speed up the closer I get to the wedding?

    I loved working with Maggiano's.  They do have one in Plano!  They were so helpful and eager to please.

    I do know that several Knotties have had their RD's at various Blue Mesa's so that's another choice.

    Clappity!  Clappity!!!! 

    My parents had never eaten there before we put our money down and, after the wedding, my dad said that, while he loved the wedding and everything else, having the reception at Maggiano's was the best money he spent on our wedding.

    We did "The Big Wedding" so we got lots of choices:
    fried zucchini and fried mozzarella (so good, both of them!)
    Maggiano's salad and Caesar salad
    fettucini alfredo and baked ziti
    chicken parm and beef tenderloin (it was extra but worth it!)
    lemon cookies (since we had cake too); they are the best lemon cookies ever!!!!

    Oh, I can also tell you that the salmon is pretty good.  Light butter and lemon.  The lasagna is good but a little dryer than we prefer.

    We are getting married at the Grand Hotel in Downtown McKinney. There is a restaurant attached, Rick's Chophouse, and I know for certain that they do private parties. They also own an Italian restaurant, Spoons. I haven't been there, but any restaurant that has an affiliation with Rick's I'm sure would be fabulous!
