Need Wedding Reception Restaurants with outdoor space or rooftop ASAP..Please Help

Hi All,

Fiancee and I are having our wedding at the end of this month (August 27) and need a restaurant for the reception as our original restaurant was Byrant Park Grill but they are now closed for a private event ;-(.. So we Need to find some place ASAP... We really would like an outdoor space but isn't mandatory but would like a restaurant similar to BPG. There will be 16 people and a child. Hope you all can help and thank you in advance.

  1. You can use Opentable to check out places with private dining:

    In terms of outdoors, only Battery Gardens and Gigino's Battery Park come to mind, but they are not food destinations (but neither is BPG really). Also, fellow Chowhounders will ask you about price range, so I might as well ask right now.

    Best of luck and congrats!

    Battery Gardens
    State St and State Plz, New York, NY 10004

    Gigino at Wagner Park
    20 Battery Pl, New York, NY 10004

      I've looked through opentable and found nothing. My budget is 100 per person.

    2. I recently had a very pleasant dinner at Bottino in Chelsea. They have a covered garden. According to their website, they have a room for a minimum of 18 people, but maybe they would work with you. Or maybe just set up an area in the garden.

      1. We went to Tonic East at 3rd Ave and E29th but the roof deck was packed. My son and fiancee love it and hang out there Sunday afternoons. I can't comment on the food but they like it.

        1. The Park, on 10th Avenue in Chelsea/Meatpacking area.
