Please help! Need to plan NYC wedding in 5 months! With amazing food! Venue suggestions?

as a person who is also planning a wedding in november, I think that it will be somewhat difficult to find a fine dining establishment that will have the space or will accomodate a band. and if that is a priority, I might consider looking at a nice venue and having it catered. the costs for the venue + the catering often rival the markup and/or the minimum that restaurants seem to demand too.

I loved this WV loft space that was too small for our wedding, but seems good for 80:
looks like there is even a stage for the band?

some foodie caterers that I would consider:
cleaver and co
olivier cheng
creative edge

good luck!

As someone who is currently planning a NYC wedding, if food is really important to you, and you have a guest list of 250, you will have to budget way more than $45K in NYC. A good caterer will run around $100-$150 pp and will provide very quality standard wedding fare, but if you really want food to be your focus and you want something more interesting/creative foodie quality, I would realistically budget $200 pp. seriously, its crazy here.
