The Zurer family (Chowhounds from Washington DC, San Francisco, and Chicago) will be in New York to celebrate a significant birthday and plan to have one "special" dinner out. My preference at this point is Gramercy Tavern....
I just wanted to get a up-to-date sense of the recent experiences there. If there is significant dissent, I would appreciate alternatives in the same vein--nothing with formal or stuffy service. Also would there be a significant difference between eating there on Sunday night as opposed to Saturday night--in terms of crowds or noise.
