My sister, adorable and capable though she is, searched the board yesterday to no avail. She is looking for a romantic, fantastic, wonderful restaurant that is open on a Sunday night for her upcoming first wedding anniversary. I guess many of the great places are closed on Sundays; she checked out Jean Georges which is opened but with a limited menu.
So: feelings on JG with limited menu? Other great suggestions? and ASAP, please...the anniversary is in a couple of weeks. Thanks and if you are coming to DC, we'll totally hook you up, from the best blueberry buckwheat pancakes anywhere right on up to sauteed sweetbreads.
PS: Her plaintive plea to me below --
"Sister: Trying to find a super romantic, excellent restaurant( French is our first
choice) in Manhattan (price is no object) for our anniversary. Here's the catch- its Gay Pride Day which COMPLETELY rules out the Village, Soho, Union
Square, Tribeca, and Gramercy Park. (Basically anything below 23rd street.(Actually a lot of places aren't even opening because of it.)
Here's the second catch- most of the best places in mid-town or above are closed on Sunday (our anniversary). We thought Jean Georges- but they
don't open their formal dining room on Sunday, and have a smaller menu- and if we are going to spend the money- we want it to be an experience.
Sooo- tried to check out Chowhounds- but don't really get it and don't have time to plow through all those postings... I was wondering if you'd put your peeps on it? Maybe someone can tell us not to worry about the limited menu at Jean Georges? Or maybe they have other Sunday night suggestions?"
