Dinner or catering after Washington University hooding ceremony

Jump to last reply

My nephew's hooding ceremony is Friday May 20 in St. Louis. Through a series of events, his parents and brother can't be there (they will be at the wedding in Italy in August though, don't worry, no family estrangement).

I stood in for the parents at the Parent's Day at Davidson years ago, so i figure I'll be there for him at the conclusion of all these years of education as well. I also told him I would arrange a dinner that Friday night. Because April was a bit out of control for me, I am only able to do this now. I know it is late.

I am considering the restaurants below. Alternatively, if my brother and family are down from Chicago I might see about bringing in something to the house, but I don't live in St. Louis and don't know who might do small dinner catering, so am open to ideas.

Here are the restaurants I am considering:

Duffs
Pomme
Brasserie by Niche
Flemings*
Trattoria Marcella

*His mom says they like this place, but it does seem to be a bit spendier than the others. If I just take my nephew and his fiance, that will be fine, but if my brother and his family are there it may be beyond my pocketbook.

Who likes which restaurants and why?
