My boyfriend and I are looking for a really nice, youthful, hip restaurant. We had heard great things about Fressen, but the food really wasn't that great there. His duck was dry and the only vegetarian food they had for me was fried cauliflower and a salad. Plus there were too many businessmen.
We also tried Babbo, but as soon as we walked in we looked at each other, realized how wrongly-dressed (not exactly UNDER-dressed) we were, and cancelled our reservations.
Anyone have any suggestions? I've heard this new place Oriont is great? We don't want the finest dining in the city, just some place fresh and hip with good food.
