Help needed for dinner next wk - places I wanted booked

Megan | Jul 15, 200406:35 PM

I must turn to the experts to help me here. I am a LA hound who is trying to assist my Philly hound father in putting together a dinner next week. Don't ask me why his group waited so long, but I need help right away. They are going to Masa's already. Planning one other night -

Location - convenient to Union Square preferred
Price range - open (read: expense account)
Food - flexible
Atmosphere - not looking for anything overly formal but definitely not casual
Service - very important given group will be 10 or so

I suggested Boulevard, Fifth Floor and Aqua- none could accommodate (I knew we'd have no chance at Michael Mina and Gary Danko). I know nothing about Rubicon, Hawthorne Lane, and Farallon, but from the posts I have read, it sounds like the food has fallen off and their best days are behind them. I was thinking of suggesting Cortez - is that too casual? (I also suggested La Folie and Quince but my dad thought that was not close enough). What other places would fit the bill?

Thank you so much.
