Can anyone advise of nice restaurants, meaning yummy food, not too fancy and not seafood! Within $65 per person budget?
Im looking for a restaurant for after my ceremony, this is not a formal wedding I’m not looking for anything lavish just good food and a nice feeling restaurant, hopefully a private dining room, though I have a feeling that budget won’t allow for private dining.

The Smith is good and has a private dining room downstairs

Try the south street seaport. If you are having say, beer, wine, champagne and a host of appetizers, this should fall within your price range. You can also do a specialty cocktail which they would include. Nice views, terrace, water, very impressive property way downtown by the Hudson River. They probably want about a $4,000 minimum. Not bad to do something sundown on Friday or Sunday for best affordability.

Check out this thread on rehearsal dinner venues. I looked for those that were around the $50 range and the other ladies also contributed their finds: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/nyc-rehearsal-dinner-venues

Try Docks Oyster Bar. They usually have some sort of price fixe option most nights that includes 4-5 entree choices. It’s an art deco restaurant so it has a nice atmosphere as well
