Wedding reception at BX Zoo or Botanical Gardens

Has anyone ever held their reception at the Bronx Zoo or the NY Botanical Gardens?
I did a walk through of the zoo and really liked it but when we saw the menu we were concerned about the food being a bit too basic and typical. The cost was great though.

I haven't seen the Botanical Gardens yet but I know Abigail Kirsch caters there and I've only read good things about her food. Any ideas on the cost at the Gardens?

Thanks for your help!!!

Wedding reception in Westchester

Hi all,
I am trying to find a venue in Westchester County for about 80 people. We are getting married in Riverdale so about an hour is all I can ask my guests to drive. I am really not very interested in the typical wedding hall venues but would love something different. I am open to restaurants or historical places and like the idea of an all-inclusive venue so I don't have to deal with multiple vendors.

A nice view of the Hudson or some greenery would be great. I can go up to about $170 per person or so. We really want good food as well.

I have looked at Harvest on Hudson but their receptions are only from 12-4:30. Any ideas? I really appreciate your help!
