Central Park is pretty big with a huge diameter. Perhaps sharing the ceremony location would prove helpful or the hotel.

So what you need is any restaurant in Manhattan that has decent food? Wow. That's a tough one. There are probably only a few thousand of those.

What is your budget? There are (literally) thousands. Would you prefer it near the venue, or maybe near your hotel? Or would you like a view - or is the food more important?

You need to let us know something more about your favorite types of food.

Since you are renewing your vowels, perhaps something in Alphabet City? Where is Ladie's Corner?

Central Park is 2.5 miles by .75 miles, so we are hoping you can be more specific about the location.

I have never heard of a Ladies Corner. Perhaps you mean the Ladies Pavilion? It is on the west side near 75th Street and is popular for weddings.

Smileynat: You said you are renewing your vowels . . . like a, e, i o u

I assume you are renewing your vows . . .

Do you want to spend $50 per person?, or $100?, or $200? Will this be lunch or dinner? I just think you don't understand the enormity of what you are asking. There are thousands and thousands of decent restaurants in Manhattan. You don't seem to have any limitations re location, or price. If you ask 20 Fodorites you'll get probably 200 suggestions. How will that help?

And some places (per se for example) need to be booked far FAR in advance.

(Suspect Inakauaidavidababy really isn't trying to help what with the Alphabet City and Per Se suggestions )

now now janisj, you little think you know it awl. I found it helpful to ask more questions with a splash of humor and you piggybacked me on the vowel typo. Humour jumper. Thunder stealer.

I've asked decent questions. Where, what block and are how old are the children? Would you bring your 2 year old twins to Per Se if you were celebrating your 5th anniversary?

Contrary to janisj, people would like to help you given better perameters. Don't get testy on us Smilynat.
