Esca or Neptune Room

ciaobaby | | Nov 2, 2007 08:47 AM

Hi all-

My seafood loving father is coming to town on Monday and I'm trying to decide where to take him for dinner. I've narrowed it down to Esca and the Neptune Room, I live on the UWS so both are relatively easy to get to. I know Esca got raves in the NY Times but it seems many people on this board don't share the same Neptune Room a better choice? I feel like Esca has a more appealing menu as my father loves Southern Italian cuisine, but if it's not executed well, we're better off somewhere else.

Price is no issue, would love a nice wine list and great service is a must. Any thoughts?
