My wife and I already got married in March. What we are looking to do is round up some few close friends and family (around 40-50pp tops) and host a post-wedding celebration in a nice spot in Manhattan in November. If I don't find a spot by this weekend, I have all but committed to Battery Gardens for my event. I have been to my fair share of weddings and I am really turned off by the "standard" menu, if you will, so I am looking for something creative and most of all - tasty. And I personally don't think Battery is the best place for something like this - but I needed a backup plan just in case.
I would love to hear some opinions for some potential venues.
I would prefer to have an intimate feel (shared space is ok, but the less the better). There will be no dancing at this event - just a sit down dinner with dessert, music playing perhaps through an ipod hooked up to a speaker system at the venue.
Thanks in advance for your time, folks.
