Appropriate Attire at a "Business Casual" Restaurant?

stah00 | Feb 20, 2010 09:04 AM

I'm taking my boyfriend to Bouley next week for his 27th birthday and I was wondering what I should tell him to wear. I know it's 'business casual,' but i don't want him to be over or underdressed. Can someone give me some recommendations?

And for myself, is it appropriate to wear a strapless dress to a business casual restaurant? It is dark, elegant and down to my knees, but I'm a little worried that maybe showing off my shoulders too much would be declasse in such a nice restaurant?
