I'm in charge of planning date night with my SO tomorrow... thanks to some great recommendations from my post last week for a group sushi night last week I found out about UES sleeper Inase... (thanks MMRuth) and since have been planning to make this the place for a much-needed night out. I called up to make a reservation and the recording says they're closed until July 16th for holiday.
I'd rather wait till Inase is back in action to satiate my sushi craving, unless there's something else out there in the UES... Sasabune? I asked about it last week with few responses. But I thought I'd reach out to y'all again... I'm looking for some place in the UES, with good wine/sake, of course good food and probably most important where we can just relax and enjoy the night (i.e. not feel pressure from the staff to order, be upsold, etc). Also, somewhere where we could get out for $150, including a few glasses of wine; any cuisine is welcome. Are there any other sleeper restaurants in this area (i.e. fav places of yours that don't get much attention)?
After surviving a hellish past few weeks at work I'm in desperately need of a great night
