Couple looking for 3 restaurants to try on a visit. Able to pay. Favor French but don't like stuffy old places. Wine lovers, but hate to overspend (have own wine cellar). One thing we would like to find is an upscale, comfortable restaurant that offers first-rate fresh oysters (don't want place that closes early and has sawdust on the floor).
With regard to restaurants, considering Quince, but ingredients look a little precious. Is it really good? Staying at Ritz--is that restaurant worth a dinner?
