Trying to decide between Niche and Melange for wife's birthday dinner next week, for a party of about 6 or 8 of us. Have been to neither, and want to go to someplace new to us. Other of our favorites in that type of restaurant are Atlas, Pomme, Terrene, Arthur Clay, American Place and Moxy. We're not willing to return to Savor, Crossing, King Louis, Monarch or Harvest [actually, I would, she won't] and most others. So, unless there's something new I'm missing [and the above list isn't exhaustive of the restaurants to which we've been and which fall into this general category], I'm willing to limit consideration to Niche and Melange, both of which sound good on paper. Comparisons and comments, or suggestions of a place we might be overlooking?
