We are planning to get married in Central Park with just some family present. Although our favorite restaurant is Trattoria L'incontro (in Astoria), we thought it may be too much back and forth during the day for everyone to go from Queens to NYC to Queens. We are looking for a place with GREAT food, nice atmosphere, and possibly a private room for about 20. Of course we'd love to keep the cost down as well if we can. Any suggestions?

    It'd help if you can post your desired price range and some food preferences.

    Ultimately it might even be cheaper to rent a vehicle and driver to bring everyone from Manhattan to Queens and eat at your favorite restaurant than to find something in Manhattan.

      The courtyard at Locanda Verde would be a nice choice.

        This bride also got married in Central Park, had a reception at Becco, and kept her budget under $10K. I can NOT vouch for their food as I've never been there, but if you're doing a budget wedding you might be interested in reading it:
