I am getting married in August 2014 in Lake County just north of Chicago. We are looking for a sit down restaurant in the Lake County area that can accommodate 50 people and somehow include alcohol, all for around $1500 with tax & gratuity included. We ideally wanted Italian family style or buffet, but are open to other options.
My future mother-in-law is paying for the dinner, and the budget was what she was hoping to spend. I have searched around and called a few places but am having trouble finding a semi-classy place in that price range. Any suggestions?
