I need a dinner joint on the East Side, preferably near Gramercy... I used to live in the city and ate my way through the east side but now only get back a few weeks a year, so I'd like to try someplace that opened up in the last couple of years. Thing is, it can't be Italian or seafood/sushi-oriented (the no-Italian rule is my dining companion's preference, the no-seafood thing is mine). We're pretty flexible on price - nothing Per Se-level, but we'll get spendy for something that's really worth it. Any ideas? If there's nothing in Gramercy, we'd be willing to venture up north to midtown east or down to the East Village.
