A really "good food" restaurant-La Cote Basque, Asia de Cuba, Balthazar, or Obeca-li, or?

I want a really good food restaurant in NYC for a
pre-theater dinner. We tend to like flavorful foods,
often with french or asina influence. Kind of tired of
italian food. We've eaten at alot of "famous"
restaurants in the past year and have yet to be
impressed with any. We currently have reservations for
Thanksgiving weekend at La Cote Basque, Asia de Cuba,
and Balthazar. Someone just told me that Balthazar is
for atmosphere and not the food. Anyone have any
experience with the above 3 restaurants, or any other
good recommendations? I'm tired of getting so-so
food...(tried Aureole's, Gotham Bar and Grill, Union
Square Cafe, Il Mulino, Le Bernadin, Astro Bar & Grill,
Lespinasse, Chanterelle, Nobu, Vong, Montrachet, Mesa
Grill) Another restaurant I'd like to know about is
Obeca-li, in Tribeca. Anyone? Thanks.
