Looking for a really "wow" dinner, location doesn't really matter although my favorite nabes are mostly below 14th street (I won't do meatpacking district, for example).
There will be 4 of us and I'm looking for really fresh, market-driven cooking (dream being blue hill but too expensive and too hard to get a reservation!). I'm flexible on type of cuisine (see below).
My Dad comes to NY a lot, so I want to blow him away and have it be a really memorable meal, but not exorbitantly expensive, loud, trendy, or pretentious.
I was thinking about Ma Peche (but maybe too pricey?), Freeman's, Commerce, not sure what else.
Reservation will be for this coming friday. Any ideas would be much appreciated! Thanks!
