Where to Eat Next?

Did a search of this Board. I need your help . . . someplace for dinner next week that will excite and surprise us. A few preliminaries:

*I only eat fish and poultry, otherwise open to all cuisines
*SO is following a Lenten diet
*I need to get a reservation easily ( preferred, no David Chang)
*Not NEW (though I've been breaking my "not until 6 months . . ." more often)
*Not noisy, not a scene
*Enjoy both casual and fine dining, tend to prefer smaller spaces
*Not Per Se, Masa, Le Bernardin, Jean Georges (saving this for lunch), Daniel, EMP
*Not The Modern - Dining Room, Falai, Periyali, Pylos, Maialino, SHO
*Doesn't matter if it's on Restaurant Week
*Good wine list a plus

Last time Kathryn suggested Kyo Ya which we enjoyed. I also thought of:

*Gotham Bar & Grill
*Picholine (not the best location, UWS)
*Ilili (not enough non-meat choices?)
*Rayuela (I like it better than SO)
*Aldea (Aldea & Falai are our current favorites)
*Cookshop (suggested by a friend, not enough non-meat choices?)
*La Fonda del sol

After looking at the menus, Marea, Tocqueville, Gotham Bar and Grill look the most interesting. Your thoughts? Someplace else?
