Please indulge my lame question re: favorite McNally Restaurant

vvv03 | Jan 5, 201106:43 AM

My sister is coming into town from Delaware for the weekend. Balthazar is one of her favorite places (mine too!) and she asked me to make a reservation. Thing is, she only ever goes there. I feel like she's missing out on so many other great places. I was thinking of taking her to a different McNally restaurant (I like his formula), what do you think of Minetta Tavern or Schillers or Pastis? Or should I do something like Freeman's? I need somewhere sceney (not necessarily "hot" but a cool ambience, like Balthazar has) with really good food. Where would you take someone who loves Balthazar for everything Balthazar has to offer, that is not Balthazar?

Minetta Tavern
113 MacDougal St, New York, NY 10012
