Best Graduation Dinner; she's Vegetarian, and Per Se is N/A -Help

JTea | Mar 22, 2008 04:59 PM

There will be 4 of us in Manhattan for my daughter's graduation, and she, a vegetarian, wanted to celebrate with dinner at Per Se. Yes, it is very expensive. But this is, you know, a special occasion, and it accommodates vegetarians, and... Being told two months in advance that the only available reservations for our May 22 dinner are at 5:30 or 10:00, has us sadly looking elsewhere. That is difficult without some help, as we live at the other end of the country. A quick search here turned up names like Bouley, Daniel, Jean Georges, Eleven Madison Park and Le Bernardin, none of which we know anything about, and impressing the vegetarian graduate is my goal. Some background; two of the party are not so adventurous, but were willing to go to Per Se; daughter has Keller's French Laundry Cookbook, which I gave her in pre-veg days, I eat anything, and we all would appreciate the less stuffy atmosphere I read about at Bouley. So, what do you say, hounds? Thanks!
