Hi, I’m looking to have a great dinner w my wife in 3 wks. I’d prefer a place that takes reservations as it makes life easier these days. It’s my pick this time and I am thinking more along the lines of The Dutch, Public, Tertulia (no rez for party of 2), Maialino….or even a gastropub such as the SpottedPig (also don’t think they take rez). But using the priors as examples of the type of place I am looking for. Any help? I have never been to The Dutch (over hyped?) but I’ve been to Maialino, Minetta, Spotted Pig, Breslin to name a few…I actually prefer them for late night or brunch/lunch etc…but not relevant.
I know I risk critic by lumping these next places together but risk I shall….I’m not looking for a place like Ai Fiori, Le Bernardin, Gotham, EMP, Per Se or Daniel. $ is not really an issue for this dinner…I’m but looking for a great meal and a great time as opposed to being catered to our every whim.
Any help, suggestions or comments are appreciated.
