Restaurant recommendations for lunch after marriage by city hall?

After a long hiatus away from NYC, my beau and I are coming back to get hitched down at the nyc marriage bureau by city hall. We're looking for a restaurant to go to afterwards for an early lunch in lower manhattan which has a nice atmosphere, good food (preferably american/european to appease the in-laws), is around the price range of $15-23 per entree and can accommodate a group of 13.

Is this possible, or am I just dreaming?

Chez Liline, Finsbury Park, London

I had eyed Chez Liline for a few months and finally went there for a special occassion. We each had a starter, main course, side dish and a beer, and the total came to about £65. I thought the food was nice: they offer fresh fish (and not just the standard varieties) in flavourful sauces and tasty side dishes. My companion and I enjoyed dinner but we both thought that it was a bit overpriced for the experience, especially in Finsbury Park (if you consider that you can go to Petek across the road and have fantastic, succulent meat dishes with rice, salad and bread in a great atmosphere for about £20 per person). The food tastes fresh but not fantastic and seems to be a bit variable, and there is not much ambiance to speak of.

I think that the set menu might be worth investigating. That way you still get nice, fresh seafood but aren't paying unusually high prices.
