Has anyone been to Cafe Botanica (Essex House)? I want to take advantage of Restaurant Week in the city, but there are so many wonderful choices. Since I'm on a limited budget, I want the best choice for my buck. Zagat seems to like Cafe Botanica, but I have heard mix reviews.
I tried several other restaurants (Lutece, Manhattan Ocean Club, and the restaurant at the Plaza) however, the person responsible for reservations at these places are very snooty.
Please provide your review of Cafe Botanica.
