Okay, call me ridiculous...
Vacationing in NYC in two weeks, going solo, want to enjoy wonderful meals at very top end restauarants (e.g. Daniel, Lespinasse, etc.), I am happy to wear the jacket but don't want to wear the damned tie!!! Short of calling every four-and-five star restaurant in Manhattan, anybody know how to find out which places require jacket only vs. coat and tie?
And, just a thought, would it make any difference lunch vs. dinner?
