My husband and I will be in NYC next week, after moving away four years ago. We have one night out alone without our young son, and we are looking for restaurant suggestions. We'll be staying on the UES, but don't mind going downtown, so long as we stay east--we don't have the time to deal with getting crosstown to the West Village, for example. Would like something intimate, excellent food, but not a " special occasion restaurant", like Eleven Madison, Alto or La Grenouille. I tried Degustation and Momofuko Ko, both are full. Jack's luxury Oyster was another thought. Willing to try most cuisines except Asian (will be doing that with DS the next night). With so much else to plan, I am overwhelmed by a task that used to be so simple, so i welcome any suggestions...
