Dress Codes - what is female equivalent of "jacket required?"

Hello from Florida, NYC hounds!

We will be heading to NYC for an early December trip, and as part of a birthday foodie extravaganza, we are planning a pilgrimage to Le Bernardin. We, being Floridians, are casually-dressed folk. I don't think there is a single restaurant I can think of in South Florida you can't go into in jeans with a nice shirt and nice shoes.

I've noted that jackets are required for men, which is a lot of extra packing for one night, but we are okay with that. However, I have no idea what the female half of the equation should be wearing.

Can someone enlighten me? Is a cocktail dress expected? Pant suit? Would pants, a blouse/sweater and dress boots be okay or are dressier heels expected? I am sorry for sounding so ignorant, but we just don't have any reference points and would prefer to blend in easily.
