I'm also looking for a reception site, ideally with food service on site, rather than catering. I looked at places in Long Island City/Sunnyside. Any suggestions for interesting city locations in Queens?
Sidetracks at 45-05 Queens Blvd. Visit and see if they can handle a Wedding Reception. They have 3 Sit Down Menus and very reasonable. Have dinner and see if you like the food and atmosphere. I've had several very good meals. www.sidetracksny.com/partymenu.html
Sorry all: I should have said that I know where we would like to eat (Quaint in Sunnyside), but I'm looking for a place for dancing/drinks afterwards. There will only be 50 or so of us. If we can't find this, we may just look for places on the Hudson.
