Hi All...coming to you again for help with my annual anniversary trip to NYC. Last yearsyear recommendations of The Modern and Ai Fiore were great!
Only one night this year, and my plan was Gramercy Tavern, but I somehow screwed up the reservation system; webite says 28 days in advance, however when I called today they said it is actually 4 weeks to the calendar day...not always the same, and since January has 31 days I needed to call yesterday...29 days in advance. Oh well, my loss.
Anyway...now looking at Dovetail, Aldea, Boulud Sud, and maybe Marea at the moment. Maybe Marc Forgione based on a friends recommendation. Looking for great food in a somewhat relaxed atmosphere. No stuffy or pretentious rooms/staff...just great food in a great place.
What would you choose between them??? Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks!!!
