I made a reservation there for my mother's birthday in a few weeks. Rather than doing one blowout meal (at, say, Eleven Madison Park), we're doing a few meals over a few days. On her birthday itself we're eating at Falai.
So, pros & cons of Public?
If more cons than pros, any other suggestions? We're looking for something Gramercy southwards, roughly same price range as Public or below, and any cuisine except Italian and Indian. My first choice was Allen & Delancey, but it's booked up.
