here's a unsolicited write up about this particular wedding that was posted on

"We were at a wedding on Valentine's day at the Society of Illustrators which is a small gallery/private club on in the east 60's - 63rd Street I think.

It was an interesting wedding - the ceremony was a mix of Indian and Western Cultures - the bride is Indian, and so was some but not all of the food. It was a fun and romantic setting, and they had a piano player during the reception which was such a nice change from a dj or band.

The caterer served a mix of really good and beautifully presented hors d'ouevres (many different varieties) which were passed throughout the evening on interesting trays (some of the wildest presentation I had ever seen) with lots of flowers and garnishes. There were a few stations as well - including some delicious and colorful grilled veggies (one of my favorites it's hard to get good vegetables at these things), salmon, creamy chicken with some sort of wine sauce, basmati rice pillaf, and a delicious wedding cake - chocolate with hazelnut filling and marzipan ganache topping - the whole evening was really lovely and we were all raving about the food, which included tandoori baby lamb chops, shrimp shooters, quesadillas, cashew chicken pompadoms, brie and mango chutney crostinis and many other passed items. Cann't remember them all but there really wasn't one that we didn't enjoy -

The setting is really pretty with lots of gorgeous artwork on the walls - the bartender told us that there are Norman Rockwellers and Dean Cornwells hanging in the dining room. I am not sure who did the catering, but here's a link to their website - you could probably ask or I can call my date and have him call his friends when they get back from their honeymoon. "
