Hi, all. I'm a Chicago Hound coming to NY Labor Day weekend for the U.S. Open. Unfortunately, we only have time for one dinner and I'd like to take my husband out of Mid-town for a cool dinner. I did a quick search but was overwhelmed by all of the names that came up. Given that it will be prime dining time (Saturday night around 8:30/9pm), I would prefer a place that takes reservations since there will be four of us total. We went to the Spotted Pig last year and loved it, but (1) they don't take reservations and (2) we'd like to try somewhere we've not been before. Food is the number one priority for us - any sort of ambience/price point will do.
Thanks in advance! Will be happy to provide Chicago recs if any of you ever need them.
