My fiance and I are planning a wedding in NYC for June 2008. We come from the UK but love the idea of having a small group of friends accompany us to New York to celebrate our big day. The wedding will take place in Central Park at about 4pm and then we want to go to a nice restaurant that serves hearty, tasty food in an intimate romantic restaurant, preferably somewhere with a private dining space. We both love our food but have very little knowledge of the restaurants with private dining facilities in NYC. There will be around 20-25 in the wedding party. At the moment I am interested in Savoy, Stanton Social and Amalia so any feedback on these venues would be really appreciated. We do have a budget of around $150 a head so although we loved the River Cafe, unfortunately it is out of our budget. We will be grateful for any recommendations.
