My uncle just offered to take me out for dinner in the new year to celebrate my recent wedding. Cost isn't really a factor (ie: I already made reservations @ Per Se in case he says 'wherever you want'), but there are some other considerations. I'm fine with stuffy pretension in fine dining, but my wife much prefers a more casual atmosphere (think: the front tavern @ Gramercy Tavern). However, for this occasion I'm looking for something a little more formal than that without getting so formal that my wife is uncomfortable. Also, American cuisine is preferred. I'm thinking about Blue Hill, but I would love some other suggestions. Thanks!
