Hello- I'm looking for a low key restaurant with garden, to have an outdoor ceremony for my 10th anniversay. The place could be in Manhattan, Queens or Brooklyn. I love The New Leaf Restaurant but is outside my budget. I'm looking to spend approx $80 pp. I dream of a charming place with a garden or Patio. The ceremony would be June 2015, but i've started to look into it as i'm so excited. Any suggestions? I want my guests to have the choice of Wine, beer and a signature cocktail. Do not need to be a sit down dinner either. Any suggestions?

    I think it might stretch your budget with booze - but not by much - but you could consider the garden at roberta's (you did say low key, right?) in brooklyn. they catered our wedding (off site) and the food is impeccable, we've been to a variety of events in the garden there and strongly considered it but it was too small for our party size.

    my major reservation (no pun intended) is that your looking at booking over 2 years out and very few places are probably going to be able to commit to you that early - their probably looking at changing menus/pricing or any number of other changes over the next 25 months.

      Thank you for the feedback. the front of Roberta's look a little shabby, but the back looks great, low key with lots of character. Thank you. I will go for lunch or dinner one of these days to check it out. Williamsburg happens to be one of my fav neighborhoods ;)
