Favorite Restaurants in Manhattan

Hello all,

I know there are thousands of restaurants in Manhattan, so why is it so hard to choose my ideal dinner spots?

My idea dinner includes:

Great natural ingredients
Classy Casual Dining
Warm friendly wait staff
Cooked just right!
Not overly salty or bland. I like TASTE!

I really liked Lupa, which is a good example of what I look for in a restaurant. Also if you have been to places in SF, even the nicest places over there are pretty laid back with GREAT food.

I am from DC, which values stuffy service...

I have looked at the James Beard listings and found the following: Any good?

Terrance Brennan
Picholine
New York, NY

Floyd Cardoz
Tabla
New York, NY

Wylie Dufresne
WD-50
New York, NY

Gabriel Kreuther
The Modern

David Waltuck
Chanterelle

A Voce
Chef: Andrew Carmellini
Owner: Marlon Abela

Momofuku Ssäm Bar

L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon

Michael Laiskonis

Thanks for the help.
