I'm looking for a restaurant with a party room for about 40 guests for a small wedding. A garden would be a great addition.

  1. You don't say what cuisine(s) you prefer or what kind of budgetary constraints you might have. That said...

    Gascogne, the small French bistro, on 8th Av., b/t 17th & 18th Sts., has very good food, a charming interior, and a truly lovely back garden. They do private parties.


    1. congrats! we had 40 people at the Inn at Irving Place in october and I strongly encourage you to check it out. it was fantastic - decor, food, service, ambiance - people are still raving!

      good luck!


      1. I'm looking for a restaurant to host up to 60 guests for a small wedding dinner, and maybe even some room for dancin. We are flexible on cuisine but on a budget, approx. $3k. Thanks.

          Trio, on 33rd St., b/t Lex & 3rd, serves very good Mediterranean cuisine. They do private parties in a space that can accommodate up to 100 people. On their website there are sample menus with prices that would fit your budget.

            Thanks so much. We will definitely take a look!

        2. We got married at Moran's in Chelsea after recomendations from Chowhound. Tom the banquet manager is a gem, the food was great the service excelent, and did I ad the banquet staff makes home made cookies for the tables? They weer very amenable to working within our budget too.
