help needed - I'm stressed and out of ideas

rockin-good | Sep 11, 2002 02:44 PM

My father has just told me that he is going to come into town in two weeks to meet my boyfriend (he doesn't yet know that we are engaged) and take us out for dinner. Unless we both get way too nervous the beau will ask my father for my hand in marriage (yeah, corny I know... but sometimes you've just got to do these things). I need to pick the restaurant but dad wants somewhere new. He's a major foodie (not chowhound) and wine connoisseur/collector so excellent both is best. On his past trips we've dined at Danube, Aquavit, Gramercy Tavern, Picholene, Babbo, all the better steak placesÂ… I know there are more. Because of the nature of this dinner it is very important that everyone is comfortable, so I don't want anything too stuffy. I want them to be able to relax and get to know one another (Mr. Stoic meets the rock musician, oh boy). Will someone please make this decision for me?
