Elopement Lunch Recs, Weekday in October

goumandette | Jun 27, 2010 06:58 PM

One Wednesday in October, we're gettin' hitched at City Hall in the morning, then catching a 9pm flight to Madrid. Between our City Hall experience and the airport, we'd like to have a nice leisurely lunch in an intimate setting.

A friend recently did something similar at Daniel, but Daniel is a little stuffy for us. Here are the criteria for our post-city hall lunch:

- preference for French/Italian/Austrian/continental
- tasting menu option for lunch preferred, wine pairing option would be an added delight
- below 59th Street, with strong preference for downtown
- upscale but not uptight
- cost not an issue

And lastly: I'm just shy of 6ft. tall and will be wearing a fitted, long dress. I'd prefer not to have to scoot into a booth, or sit at a table without ample room for me to adjust both legs and skirt. The bf is also tall, and likes his leg/elbow room, but not at the expense of canoodling ;-)
