I sought assistance last week and got helpful feedback. I'm bringing my boyfriend up to the City for his birthday and looking for a spectacular dining experience. He is a total foodie (though luckily doesn't read this site, hence he won't be on to me). I was going to do Aqua but decided against it. Gary Danko and Masa's are booked (several people recommended them).
So it's come down to two: I have a reservation at La Folie. I am on the wait list at the Fifth Floor (only opening was 10 PM) but think I might get in if I really try b/c I'm staying at the hotel. Any thoughts on which would be the best bet?
I swear I have read a billion previous posts and I don't feel like I can pick btwn them. Any guidance would be extremely appreciated!
btw, I chose Delfina for the other night. Thanks for the recs.
