I am stuck between Gramercy Tavern, Cru, and River Cafe for my boyfriend's birthday dinner this week. Any suggestions between the three? I realize that the food at River Cafe may not be up to par with Gramercy Tavern, but my boyfriend loves a nice view which is why it's on the list. We both love good food, wine, and a young, lively atmosphere.
Any help would be appreciated! And, if you can tell me if you recommend ordering off the menu or tasting menu at any of the above, that'd be great.
