I am trying to plan a dinner for the night of my college graduation. I wanted to eat at No. 9 Park, and despite them willing to bend the "28 days in advance" booking rule, i came to find out they are closed on Sundays. I proceeded to call B&G, however, they happen to be open on sundays, but were not wiling to bend the rule. I will most likely try my hand at getting a reservation there anyway, but incase I can't, i need other options. Mistral is my fall back as I have been there, and have a connection there so i can get a reservation without a problem. I definitely wanted to try something different however. We are eating at Rocca (i actually really like that restaurant, so no comment please) the night before, so I really don't want Italian again.
Price is no object and we are all foodies, so pretty much anything goes. I have been to Clio, as have my parents and although we like it, I was hoping again, to try something else for a change.
As of right now, I have L'espalier, B&G, and Troquet as my other options. As well as Mistral which i stated above is my fall back option. How do you feel about these choices, and I would welcome any other suggestions as well!
