My wife's birthday is coming up, and she is interested in going to Dovetail. I thought I would check on here to get opinions on whether this is a good choice. She is open to other possibilities if there are better ones. As this is a special meal, we're not that worried about price, but we're not going to Per Se either.
Similar places we've been to include:
Tocqueville (very good)
SHO (very good)
Jean Georges (meh)
Cafe Boulud (very good)
We generally care more about food than ambiance, but an atmosphere worthy of a special occasion wouldn't hurt.
