Looking for a table for 12 for a wedding dinner. Left it too late for comfort and hoping for suggestions to save the day. Problem is, it's July 29, the last Friday in July. Gay marriage season will probably just be starting. Mazel tov, one and all, but there will obviously be a lot of bookings and we were caught behind in our planning.
We're looking for a classy place, excellent food with some kid accessibility, as 5 diners will be from 9-14. Excellent service, as this is a special dinner.
To give you a sense of the kind of place I dreamed about: I tried Nougatine, but they don't take reservations for more than 8. From descriptions, I would probably like the food at Kefi but fear the room might be a bit rough around the edges for a wedding dinner.
Is a table for 12 ridiculous? Never tried to make a reservation like this before, I'm not a NYC person.
So. Suggestions? Call me dumb if you like, I'm already feeling it, just throw me an idea.
(Extra points for places close to Central Park, where the (short, simple) wedding will happen.)
