Wedding in NYC for 60-80 people - looking for a restaurant - suggestions???

Thanks for all your replies. Have looked into Del Posto but for 80 people for cocktail hour ($50/pp) and 4 course meal ($160/pp) with a 32% gratuity and tax, the cost is already over $22,000 and that does not include alcohol.

We'd like to keep our budget less than $20,000 for everything.

Any other thoughts??? So far those that are within our budget are too small or are already booked. I appreciate any suggestions!

My boyfriend and I are from Toronto, Canada but LOVE New York and so are planning our wedding to be in the conservatory gardens in Central Park on June 9th.

Afterwards, we would like to have a nice meal at a decent restaurant preferably in the meatpacking/west village/soho/tribeca area and ideally it would also have an outdoor space for a cocktail hour before dinner. Our budget is approximately $10,000-$15,000 and we expect between 60 to 80 people. We recognize that if we end up with 80 people that our budget will have to increase to $20,000, but would prefer to aim closer to $15,000.

We would appreciate any suggestions!

Also just a bit about us, we are in our early 30s, "young professionals" and are hoping that there will be somewhere fun nearby (or the restaurant itself) for fun night out after dinner, but this is not the priority in our choice of restaurants.

Thanks so much in advance!

Thank you foodwhisperer but unfortunately The Bowery was booked, and the other were not what we had in mind...
