I am planning a special dinner for 5 women in late May and have a reservation at Mercer Kitchen. After reading the postings I am considering changing my plans. Has anyone been to Mercer after Bruni's review? Any other ideas of places where I could actually get a reservation? I admit that Mercer was the last on my list but the only one I could get a reservation. Now I know why! We want to stay below 14th street. thanks.
