The Lounge at Daniel or.......?

Addendum | Oct 8, 2009 10:16 PM

My sister, her husband, and I are taking our mother on a surprise trip to NYC for her 70th birthday (She is always head to toe Armani, Chanel and Manolo Blahniks,,,,not your blue haired old lady variety of 70). I had wanted to do a Saturday night dinner at Daniel followed by the 10:30 set at Feinsteins, however the American Express Concierge messed up my reservation request and Daniel is booked! Now I must choose between a table in the lounge at Daniel or choose somewhere else. I was thinking Eleven Madison Park or Aisiate? Interested in others opinions - is a table in the lounge at Daniel better than any other option - and hope for a cancellation in the main dining room?

FYI - We have late dinner reservations on Friday at Minetta Tavern after a show. So I am really looking for amazing food and luxe environment for Saturday night.

Thank you!
