I'm looking for upscale Asian or Asian-influenced places for a parental visit next month. Places I've taken them in the past that they've enjoyed include Fatty Crab, Devi, Tamarind, Kuma Inn.
I'm trying to avoid the mega-scene places like Megu, Spice Market, etc. unless there is one with really worthwhile food. Open to Thai, Chinese, Malaysian, Indian, Japanese, Vietnamese, Pan-Asian. My initial ideas include Bread Bar at Tabla, Bouley Upstairs, maybe Chinatown Brasserie. Any price point is fine, but looking for places with at least some atmosphere - not the typical Chinatown bare bones look. Any other suggestions/recommendations or any endorsements/warnings against the places I'm considering would be much appreciated.
