Posted in: elegant wedding reception east windsor ct

Savvy brides can plan elegant weddings on a small budget. These days weddings can cost a fortune. The average cost of a wedding was upwards of 25,000 dollars in 2010. To some people planning a wedding on a smaller budget is an absolute must.

Here are our tips to planning your wedding on a budget:

1.   Be flexible with dates. Saturday is always the most desired, you may save money by planning your wedding on a Sunday or Friday.

2.  Limit your guest list. Be realistic and don’t invite people out of obligation.

3.  Skip the full bar and serve beer and wine instead.

4.  DIY, get creative and decorate with re-purposed home items such as mason jars.

5.  Pick a few absolute musts and skip on the extras.

Nutmeg Review – Best Restaurants in CT

Posted in: Uncategorized

We strive to provide the best quality food and top notch service to our customers. That’s why we are one of the best restaurants in CT. Here is what one person had to say!


Kathy B- East Windsor

I had the pleasure of booking a dinner dance at the Nutmeg Restaurant for 54 people. The meal was absolutely incredible, the service was outstanding, working with George to set the event up was a wonderful experience. The facility was elegant, it will measure up to anyone’s expectations, and go above them.

With a crowd of 54 where they each paid for their dinner ticket, I would usually expect some complaints- Not One! The plates were full, not skimpy in any way, and everything was superb!

You want to book your next event here-this is a gem! And, they serve dinner nightly so you can check them out in advance.


We Thank Kathy for her review and were honored to host her event! If you are hosting your next event give us a call to visit our facility and learn about our menus.
