Old Guard French Birthday Dinner

ErikLong | Aug 22, 201106:13 AM     53

I have my birthday coming up and I've decided on a specific cuisine in mind but not specific on a place yet. One of my favorite restaurants in the city for service and food is La Grenouille. It's decadent and has one of the most attentive staff in the city in my opinion. The entrees transport me back in time without having been stuck there and the souffle for dessert is brilliant.
i've also tried La Mangeoire as well. Decent and satisfying. i like that place because it's unassuming and not scene-y.
...But, i've been there before and i'm looking for opinions on some new "old guard" haute French restaurants here in Manhattan. I've been meaning to try Le Veau d'Or but havent yet. Has anyone got any ideas for a place that is under the radar and amazing at the same time? Your help would be great and i would appreciate your feedback!
