Going to one of these with my buddy and want to know what everyone suggests. They all have awesome menus and I am totally confused! Please tell me what each of you recommend and especially which dishes.

I am bummed the mushroom lasagna is not on the menu anymore at Gramercy Tavern- really wanted to try that. Maybe if I ask they can whip it up for me. Anyway as far as the menu goes for apps veal cappelletti looks good. For mains the sirloin and braised flat iron, duck, and rack of lamb sound good. What do you recommend from these? Also, The tasting menu also looks interesting, however I would like to substitute- Do you think they would allow that- I know some restaurants do. For dessert gotta try to cocoa nib ice cream with the bread budding.

I am really dying to try to duck at EMP and have heard great things from many on the board. Union Sq. has a really appealing, awesome menu as well. So where should we go?
