My foodie girlfriend secured a sitter last minute for tonight and I'd like to treat her to a great gal dinner near her UES home (96th and Park area) or easily accessible to the 6 train in case of a kid emergency. I'm an LA resident (love Canele and Animal) so am finding myself overwhelmed in Manhattan food land and in need of guidance.
On the board, I've read good things about both Itzocan Bistro and Cafe D'Alsace. Could we get in to these places? We both like Thai, French, fusion but not Italian or burgers. Price wise, with wine, if we could keep it in the $50 pp that'd be a plus as well.
Any suggestions? And thanks in advance.
