Was able to get those reservations so grabbed them. We have a couple of things to celebrate plus have not been to either - also considered Eleven Madison but the reaction to the new menu seems inconsistent. Have been to Jean Georges (many times - oh the days of expense accounts!) and Per Se. Not interested so much in Masa or other Asian fusion/omekase types places (have good choices in Vancouver and Toronto - but maybe I'm wrong?).
Other places I thought of - WD-50, Corton, Brooklyn Fare (I know - you can laugh) Any other suggestions?
Staying in the East Village (free apartment for a week!) - any interesting suggestions in that area would also be appreciated.
