Hello everyone - I've been asked to make a reservation for a party of four and admit to being guilty guilty guilty of always going to my regular favs (Jean-Georges, Restaurant Daniel).
Yes I've been to Eleven Madison Park. It was fine yet been there a few times now. Also Nomad.
Not sure extreme drama is required ... we were at Marea last year and liked the vibe and the food. The table could converse yet a pleasant buzz outside our table was welcome.
Thinking of Gilt ... yet other suggestions are welcome!
