Celebratory Dinner - 4 Options

I know this has been asked a lot on this board, but I haven't read anything recently about 2 of the 4 restaurants I am looking at for a celebratory, post engagement dinner this Friday night.
The contenders are
Eleven Madison Park - Gourmand Tasting
The Modern - Spring and Chef Tasting Menu
Gotham Bar and Grill - Chef's Tasting
Picholine - Menu Royale

I've eaten at both the Modern and Eleven Madison before, and enjoyed both. Never been to the other two. I really enjoy EMP, but my SO thinks it might be a bit too stuffy for her. I like that the Modern has 2 different tasting menus, so we can try more of what the kitchen has to offer, we typically do this at JG when we go.
I guess the big question is Picholine too staid for a jubilent dinner? Haven't heard much about the food there lately, but have always heard good things from industry friends in regards to it.

I think I'm leaning towards the Modern or Picholine, but could also take other suggestions.

Eleven Madison Park
11 Madison Ave., New York, NY 10010

The Modern
9 West 53rd Street, New York, NY 10019

Gotham Bar and Grill
12 East 12th Street, New York, NY 10003

35 West 64th St., New York, NY 10023
